Question by Mike: Interesting Question! What do you know about Soyuz 1 spacecraft?
Now, I’ve read and researched a lot enough regarding the spacecraft and also its tragedy…
But, I’m a bit confused with some part of the following text, the one in DOUBLE APOSTROPHES…
A day later, the second Soyuz equipped
with a passive docking port, and carrying
three cosmonauts would follow. Two
vehicles would linkup in orbit and a pair of
cosmonauts from the second Soyuz would
don their spacesuits, exit their ship via a
hatch in the habitation module and crawl
to the Soyuz-1 through open vacuum of
space. “A spacewalking pair would return to
Earth along with Komarov, while the
remaining cosmonaut onboard Soyuz-2
would touch down alone.”
Look at the part of the text above…
Pls Help me to understand, if you’ve thoroughly got it….:)
Thank you Jason for your concern, but all I meant was : 2 spacewalkers would crawl to Soyuz-1 and as I mentioned above it says that, “the spacewalkers along with Komarov would return to Earth” …and… “”the other one in Soyuz 2 would touch down alone!””….
So, why doesn’t it say that “all” of them would come back to Earth in Soyuz 2?? Rather it says,”the one in Soyuz 2″ would touch down “alone”!!…
Does it mean that, the 2 spacewalkers and Komarov would come spacewalking all the way to Earth! LOL!!……:D
Pls any1 else??? 🙂
Well, thanks once again, all, for your kind response. But, I think Soyuz 1 was launched in a hurry due to political pressure, and that the cosmonauts and every1 else knew that soyuz1 had technical errors. And, my imagination was that Soyuz 2, was supposed to be deployed to “save” Komarov…. and I thought that, probably Komarov would come back with Soyuz 2!!
I know this sounds foolish, buh, the ultimate question is, was SOYUZ 2 sent to “save” Komarov or just for another mission similar to SOYUZ 1’s?? :/
Pls don’t be harsh….:)
Hmm…anyway, here’s the link :
