He participated in the creation of missiles and of a manned ship that brought the two American astronauts to the International space station. “FACTS” got in touch with Alex, who now lives in USA, he replied that he was touched by such attention, but declined to be interviewed.
However, “FACTS” have tried to collect the maximum information about our compatriot, including the company’s Mask.

In 2006 he moved to the United States, continuing there to work for the same company. And after a while switched to Google.
In 2013, Alex accepted the offer to become an employee of the Space X, because participation in the creation of the Falcon 9 rocket and manned spacecraft Crew Dragon has combined both his Hobbies — programming and Astronautics.
In 2018, Alex conducted tour in the company Space X for Svyatoslav Vakarchuk
After 2 years this was followed by the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket. Our compatriot was in charge of her landing. Now he heads a group of Flight Software programmers that developed the software for the current successful manned flight to the ISS.
