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.
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:

This Navajo park ranger reveals the truth about what’s happening to people inside these parks. Today, we take a look at what this Navajo park ranger said about working inside this park. The police do incredible work, and they are usually the first ones on the scene when something goes wrong. Every so often though they will encounter something that even they can’t explain. One of the places where officers are seeing strange things is that of the Navajo Reservation of the American southwest. This location is known for mysterious and legendary stories and the police here have encountered some strange things. One of the issues though is when police report these types of encounters, they can be mocked and locked down on. The police at Navajo Reservation however have a different view on things. They take these sightings and encounters seriously and will try to look into and understand each report. Today, we take a look at this compilation of interesting discoveries and announcem
Lazar’s story about the secret underground facility S4 sounds fantastic but it is not a lie. S4 facility at Area 51 photographed during construction. The location of S4 has been a mystery for decades. Bob Lazar worked at S4 from December 1988 till mid of 1989. All he shared with the public were a few sketches and a short description of nine hangars built in the slope of a mountain, located ten miles South of Groom Lake (Area 51) and near the Papoose Lake dry bed. So where is this base? With so little information finding S4 is searching for the needle in the haystack. 31 Years passed and the location was still unknown. People found lines in the sediment in a mountain on the Eat side of Papoose Lake and UAP Research too believed to have found S4 (actually we now believe that it is the predecessor of S4) South of Papoose Lake but the evidence was still missing. Not anymore as a couple months ago while watching an old video from 1989 UAP Research saw something that dropped his mouth
A weird floating object that looks like a flying humanoid figure, as we can see a head, arms and legs which are attached to a body, appeared to fly through the sky over Maryhill In Glasgow, Scotland. Lynsey Currie spotted the strange shape soaring over her flat in Glasgow on which her boyfriend quickly filmed the odd spectacle. She told Glasgow Live that it was flying “from the northwest of Glasgow towards the southwest” in her footage.
