In Memoriam: Soyuz 11.

Flying into space is a risky and dangerous business that has taken the lives of astronauts and cosmonauts from around the world. Thirty-five years ago yesterday, cosmonauts Georgy Dobrovolsky, Vladislav Volkov and Viktor Patsayev died during re-entry of their Soyuz 11 spacecraft. Let us remember their sacrifice as humanity pushes forward to our future as a spacefaring civilization.
