on the secrecy of the construction of Baikonur: there was a correspondent in the first construction team in the newspapers a list of labor exploits of youth was published 243 people received awards

(I found the story with the CIA in the "yellow press")

after his flight, Yuri Gagarin holds a press conference (for the foreign press) where he talks in detail about his flight

And still, they placed the construction site 300 km east than it really was. Again, read the article, it is pretty good and often quoted.

Can´t those batteries be recharged, through some pad umbilical, or something? If not, this is indeed a big facepalm.

Best regards,
From the science.org article:
BioSentinel, NEA Scout, and three other CubeSats were allowed to recharge their batteries during their long wait aboard the SLS. But five others were out of luck, including both LunaH Map and Lunar IceCube. Some could not be recharged without removing them from the rocket; in other cases NASA engineers feared the process might spark discharges that could harm the rest of the rocket.
