Quote: "When we look into the sky it seems to us to be
endless. We breathe without thinking about it, as is natural... and then you sit
aboard a spacecraft, you tear away from Earth, and within ten minutes you have
been carried straight through the layer of air, and beyond there is nothing! The
'boundless' blue sky, the ocean which gives us breath and protects us from

VALERI N. KUBASOV
Born: January 7, 1935 in Vyazniki, Vladimir Oblast, USSR
Died: February 19, 2014 in Moscow, Russia
Valeri Nikolayevich Kubasov (born 7 January 1935 in
Vyazniki) is a former Soviet cosmonaut who flew on two missions in the Soyuz
programme as a flight engineer: Soyuz 6 and Soyuz 19 (the Apollo-Soyuz mission),
and commanded Soyuz 36 in the Intercosmos programme. On 21 July 1975, the Soyuz
7K-TM module used for ASTP landed in Kazakhstan at 5:51 p.m. and Kubasov was the
first to exit the craft.
He was also involved in the development of
the Mir space station. He retired from the Soviet space program in March 1993.
He was later deputy director of RKK Energia.
Kubasov seems to have
cheated death twice during his space career. He was part of the crew that was
originally intended to fly Soyuz 2, which was found to have the same faulty
parachute sensor that resulted in Vladimir Komarov's death on Soyuz 1 and was
later launched without a crew. Later, he was grounded for medical reasons before
the Soyuz 11 flight, which killed the crew when the capsule was accidentally
depressurised by a faulty valve.
