The Only People to Die in Space

Perish in Space

A video looking at the tragic fate of the only people to ever perish in the vacuum of space.
“Soyuz 11 (Russian: Союз 11, Union 11) was the only crewed mission to board the world’s first space station, Salyut 1 (Soyuz 10 had soft-docked but had not been able to enter due to latching problems). The crew, George Dobrovolsky, Vladislav Volkov, and Viktor Patsayev, arrived at the space station on 7 June 1971 and departed on 29 June. The mission ended in disaster when the crew capsule depressurized during preparations for reentry, killing the three-man crew. The three crew members of Soyuz 11 are the only humans known to have died in space.”
