For 60 years when humans first flew into space, Russia still did not understand what “killed” Soviet hero Yuri Gagarin.

The year 2021 is a full 60 years since Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin first flew into space.

Humanity will mark the 60th anniversary of first entering space in April 2021 since the historic flight date. April 12, 1961 of the Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin.

After six decades, space has welcomed a total of 560 astronauts from 41 countries flying to low-altitude Earth orbit (LEO), traveling past LEO and onto the Moon.

In parallel with the peak space science achievements from the 20th century to the present, many countries and space agencies have faced unforgettable losses about people.

In the Soviet Union alone (later Russia), 37 astronauts of this country died from various causes, from January 1, 1960 to December 31, 2018 – Figures are provided by the Izmerov Institute for Occupational Health, the Burnasyan Federal Center for Medical Physiology and the Institute of Biomedical Problems.

Regarding the etiology, groups of medical organizations in Russia have just announced after research lasting nearly 6 decades. Accordingly, cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of morbidity among Soviet and Russian astronauts.


From research 48.65% Out of 37 people who died of cardiovascular diseases, 27.03% other can not fight malignant tumors (cancer). Exactly 16.22% The number of fatalities is due to external causes (accidents).

The “other” cause accounts for 5.41% of the total cases, in which 1 case cannot determine the etiological cause of vong.

The average age of death was 64.4 years, for all reasons.

March 27, 2021 marked the 53 years of Yuri Gagarin’s death. On March 27, 1968, Yuri Gagarin’s MiG-15 UTI crashed during a routine training flight outside Moscow, killing him and test pilot Vladimir Seryogin.

At the time of her death, Yuri Gagarin was only 34 years old. The direct cause of Gagarin’s death is still a lot of mystery and controversy to this day.

Since then, six other Soviet and Russian astronauts have been killed in the crashes, among them: Vladimir Komarovwho died in 1967 when the umbrella for the Soyuz 1 mission failed to open. In 1971, the astronauts Georgy Dobrovolsky, Viktor Patsayev and Vladislav Volkov was killed in transit after dismantling cargo from Salyut 1 space station. Astronauts Valentin Bondarenko and Sergei Vozovikov died of training accidents in 1961 and 1993.

In their study, the researchers concluded that because all the deceased astronauts were active during the dawn of space travel (meaning their flights were generally short. ), there is a lack of information to assess the long-term health impact of space flight.

The Soviet Union and Russia account for nearly 51% of all space flight time, recording more than 29,100 days in orbit since space flights began.

Of the 34 Soviet and Russian astronauts who spent 365 days or more in orbit, 24 retired and 2 died. The rest is still active.
