Lack of assignments

In July 1968, the three IZMIRAN cosmonauts completed their initial OKP. Yershov was assigned directly to the L-1 group while he was still undergoing his initial training. A candidate for navigator-cosmonaut aboard one of the early Zond ("probe") circumlunar missions, he was assigned to development issues with the L-1 autonomous navigation system; one part of a system that included onboard computers, a sextant and "a crew console''. Sadly, with constant delays to the lunar programme and an increasing shortage of funds, it became obvious even to the scientist-cosmonauts that there would be nothing for them to fly on.
