Sergey Gorinsky was born on the day when three cosmonauts died returning from space. The house, town, and country of his birth exist no more. The cosy two-story block of communal apartments was replaced by a suburban skyscraper. The town of Skhodnya got merged into the city of Khimki. The Soviet Union was disjoined, leaving Sergey in Russia. Graduate studies brought Sergey to the USA, where he eventually became a permanent resident. Sergey is married with two children, a girl and a boy. The marriage took place on Maui in Hawaii after a successful proposal at the Haleakala summit earlier in the day. In Spain, Sergey found his new home.
