Ernst Stuhlinger was a lucky guy. He was an assistant professor in Berlin working on nuclear physics when the German Army drafted him in 1941. He was wounded in the Battle of Moscow and was one of the few men in his unit to escape Stalingrad. Lucky for him the powers that be let him work on rocket guidance systems instead of be a side of beef stopping bullets somewhere.

Speaking of Yuri and cosmonauts in general, did you ever hear the creepy recording of Vladimir Komarov cursing the Soviets and everyone that put him into his capsule, while he plummeted to his death?



There's a lot of stuff out there on Cosmonauts that supposedly went up before Yuri and died horrible deaths, covered up (of course) by the Soviets.

So I don't know if anyone else saw this, but Russia has it's own Space Force. Something I've not seen reported in mainstream media, but then again I usually avoid them like the plague. They've had such a thing off and on for a while, and started it back up in 2015.

I don't see any memes making fun of them, lol. Perhaps I'm just missing something.

And they're rather pissy that we're considering doing our OWN thing...

Mig29K landing on Admiral Kuznetzov.  Watch the main struts flex as the plane hits the deck.  If you compare that to other navy's carrier landings, it is pretty obvious this plane isn't designed for use on carriers.
