Early Soviet Space Mishaps

A fascinating account of two Italian brothers who apparently eavesdropped on many early Soviet and American space missions. Sensationally, they claim that a number of early manned Soviet missions failed with cosmonauts dying by suffocation, burning up on reentry or missing orbit and simply sailing off into space. Plenty of questions about if all of their recordings were real.
