Jett on Star City Life

NASA Director of Operations - Russia, Brent Jett, talks about Star City life, in his Oral History.

Jett says, "By the time I was there ... it had improved dramatically. There were quite a few stores in Star City itself, and they were privately owned. And the food... I mean, it wasn't like going into a supermarket here [in the U.S.] but you could pretty much get whatever you needed to get by.

"And then if we needed, [we could] go into Moscow ... on the weekends. Moscow's like any other big city. You can buy anything in Moscow, [although] it's a little expensive."
