Please note tht the Pravda article ignored the Borman, Lovell,
Anders flight around the moon (without Landing). Furthermore
talk about a rocket speed of 1500 mph is absurd.

The orbiting craft is moving at about 17,000 mph and goes up to
25,000mph as it is boosted out of orbit and then coasts, slowing
down, the rest of the way until the moon grabs it and speeds it

The total operating time for the rockets is about 17 minutes out
of the 69 hour trip time to the moon.

Apparently the Pravda guy, as with many others, assumes rockets
are firing all the time on the way to a space rendezvous which
is totally wrong. There is a lot of cosmic freeloading going on.
