A fallen Cosmonaut returns home. Another one follows him. We learn that the whole story is never the whole story . . . unless it is.
I used "Escaping the Bonds of Earth: The fifties and sixties" by Ben Evans and "Rockets and People Vol 3" by Boris Chertok, "The First Soviet Cosmonaut Team" by Rex Hall and Colin Burgess, and "Challenge to Apollo" by Asif Siddiqi. Additionally, I referenced the Hendrickx and astronautix.com translations of the Kamanin diaries as well as "Red Star in Orbit" by James E. Oberg. Also special thanks to Sven Grahn for his Space sounds.
Music during the story of Icarus was "Harbor" by Kai Engel. Somewhere else was "On the Moon" by johnny_ripper. The European Archive gave us the third movement of Tchaikovsky's "Suite No. 1" and the second movement of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade". Also included were Jazzar's "Railroad Whiskey co," Kai Engel's "Oneiri," "Labyrinth" by Sergey Cheremisinov,
We end it with the Prelude to Richard Wagner's "Das Rheingold," as performed by the United States Military Band, followed by, as always, Podington Bear's "Afterglow."
