What Happened to the Astronauts Who Were Lost in Space for 311 Days?

Mankind has already attained several milestones in the field of modern space exploration. We have put several humans on the surface of the moon, sent unmanned space probes to foreign planets, and are currently even making plans to permanently colonize other celestial bodies. 


In view of present and future achievements, however, we should not forget that the foundations of manned space flight were not laid out of pure scientific interest, but rather because of the political turmoil of the time. 

In order to prove to their hated adversary that their own nation possessed the most advanced technology of all time, the United States and the Soviet Union showed little regard for casualties during the Cold War. 

We'd like to join you in taking a look at a somewhat lesser-known side of the "race to space." We take a look at the stories of some Soviet cosmonauts, which raise the critical question of how much human suffering is acceptable for the sake of technical progress. 

Additional: 

1. Vladimir Mikhaylovich Komarov (16 March 1927 – 24 April 1967) was a Soviet test pilot, aerospace engineer, and cosmonaut. In October 1964, he commanded Voskhod 1, the first spaceflight to carry more than one crew member. He became the first Soviet cosmonaut to fly in space twice when he was selected as the solo pilot of Soyuz 1, its first crewed test flight. A parachute failure caused his Soyuz capsule to crash into the ground after re-entry on 24 April 1967, making him the first human to die in a space flight. 

2. On June 16, 1963, aboard Vostok 6, Soviet Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova becomes the first woman to travel into space. After 48 orbits and 71 hours, she returned to earth, having spent more time in space than all U.S. astronauts combined to that date. 

But, was Soviet Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova the first woman to travel into space? 

The Torre Bert Recordings. 

The Judica-Cordiglia brothers are two former amateur radio operators who made audio recordings that allegedly supported the conspiracy theory that the Soviet space program had covered up cosmonaut deaths in the 1960s. 

On May 19, 1961, the Torre Bert listening station ( Judica-Cordiglia brothers) in northern Italy purportedly picked up a transmission of a woman’s voice, sounding confused and frightened as her craft began to break up upon reentry. 

Is this the first woman in space? 

The supposed recording of a Soviet space flight in 1961. In it, a Russian woman can be heard complaining about the increasing temperature inside the craft before it is destroyed attempting re-entry. 

This was recorded by the Judica-Cordiglia brothers in 1961. It is reportedly one of many transmissions intercepted by the two brothers that prove the existence of the lost cosmonauts. 

The following is a translation of what the woman is saying: 

five…four…three …two…one…one two…three…four…five… come in… come in… come in… LISTEN…LISTEN! …COME IN! COME IN… COME IN… TALK TO ME! TALK TO ME!… I AM HOT!… I AM HOT! WHAT?… FORTYFIVE?… WHAT?… FORTYFIVE?… FIFTY?… YES…YES…YES… BREATHING… BREATHING… OXYGEN… OXYGEN… I AM HOT… (THIS) ISN’T THIS DANGEROUS?… IT’S ALL… ISN’T THIS DANGEROUS?… IT’S ALL… YES…YES…YES… HOW IS THIS?

'HUGE' MH370 breakthrough: Wreck pinpointed 4km deep in Indian Ocean, engineer claims

New tracking technology may have finally solved the mystery of flight MH-370 which disappeared 7-and-a-half years ago  British aerospace engineer, Richard Godfrey has spent the last 9 months using new tracking technology known as 'weak signal propagation' combined with data from the satellite communications system onboard MH370 to track the missing plane’s doomed final flight.  “Together the two systems can be used to detect, identify and localize MH370 during its flight path into the Southern Indian Ocean,” he said to 7news . According to his report, the aircraft crashed about a minute after the final satellite link-up at 8.19am over the Indian Ocean.  He claims to have pinpointed the precise coordinates where Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 crashed and dropped to the bottom of the southern Indian Ocean, injecting new hope the plane will be found. He believes the wreckage is 1,900 kilometers west of Perth, lying at a depth of 4-thousand meters, allowing experts to hone in on a mo

The world's first 'living robots' that can now replicate themselves

Scientists have created astonishing new “living programmable organism” a super-sophisticated robot capable of self-replication.  The Xenobots, computer-designed bio-robots, were adapted from frog stem cells and have now been programed to self replicate, spawning ‘babies’ from their Pac-Man-like mouths. Then these new Xenobots can go out, find cells, and build copies of themselves. Again and again.  They hope that the self-generating Xenobots could advance personalized drug treatment for cancers, traumatic injuries, birth defects, and other major health issues.  But is it the future of modern medicine? Technology futurist Ian Khan cautions against excessive optimism or excitement blinding us to the risks involved in the dawning technology. Robots that reproduce themselves 'aren't giant monsters — yet'  By creating these self-replicating "living robots," the scientists are essentially answering the idea that self-replicating alien probes, known as von Neumann probes
