The charred body of Vladimir Komarov, the man who fell from space
Vladimir Komarov was a cosmonaut. The Soyuz 1, spacecraft had many problems initially- in fact more than 203 structural faults were identified, but Komarov still decided to press on with it. Why? He said if he didn’t, they would’ve just sent in another pilot, one that would’ve been his good friend Yuri Gagarin.
When Soyuz 1 was in space (near Earth orbit), the antennae didn’t work correctly neither did the power or navigational system AND the ship didn’t even have enough fuel. The moment that messed everything up was when the capsule decided to return back to Earth. The parachutes didn’t work.
Komarov and the spacecraft plummeted back to Earth. Some have said he died screaming and cursing the people who lead him to this.
His body turned molten, charred and unrecognizable.
