      Vladimir Komarov and the national hero Yuri Gagarin were chosen as the primary and backup pilots for Soyuz 1, the more sophisticated spacecraft. The men were best friends, working, hunting, drinking, and spending their free time together. They were both brilliant engineers and both aware of how risky and complicated the mission was.

      Jul 13,  · Launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome; landing near Orenburg (40 km from Novoorsk / 3 km of Karabutak). Prior to launch, Soyuz 1 engineers are said to have reported design faults to party leaders, but their concerns were overruled by political pressures for a series of space feats to mark the anniversary of Lenin's birthday.

      In the two decades after Komarov's tragic flight, Western observers carefully put together bits and pieces of available information and imagery, which enabled them to paint a rough, but credible picture of the events surrounding the Soyuz-1 mission.

      Aug 13,  · Vladimir Komarov (right) knew that he had to fly Soyuz 1 because his backup was the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin (left), a national hero, who had to be protected. Ironically, both men would die within a year of each other.

      Soyuz 1 was launched on 23 April at UTC from Baikonur Cosmodrome carrying Komarov, the first Soviet cosmonaut to fly in space twice. Problems began shortly after launch when one solar panel failed to unfold, leading to a shortage of power for the spacecraft's systems.

      Soyuz 1 was a manned spaceflight of the Soviet space program. Launched into orbit on 23 April carrying cosmonaut Colonel Vladimir Komarov, Soyuz 1 was the first crewed flight of the Soyuz spacecraft. The flight was plagued with technical issues, and Komarov was.
