The Soviet Space Programme – Space Is Hell

Space Is Hell by The Soviet Space Programme Vostok Zero, the first human spaceflight, was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Soviet Union on 1st April 1961, piloted by Colonel Ivan Ivanovich – a cosmonaut whose name has been entirely expurgated from even the most restricted secret records of the Soviet Space Programme. During the launch, the Vostok-K carrier rocket, which had only ever been intended to place the spacecraft into Earth orbit, catastrophically malfunctioned, and instead sent Ivanovich hurtling off on a trajectory which would eventually carry him far beyond our solar system, into deep space, with no hope

The very existence of the ill-fated flight of the first man in space has of course never been officially acknowledged by either the Soviet or Russian authorities – and yet these remarkable recordings of Ivanovich’s final transmission, received just before radio contact with Vostok Zero was lost forever, stand as testament to his untold story. ✪
