Pavel Popovich
Birth: Oct. 6, 1929
Kiev, Ukraine
Death: Sep. 30, 2009

Cosmonaut. Born Pavel Romanovich Popovich, he was part of the pioneer Soviet team of Cosmonauts and was one of the first men to go into space orbit. After studying aviation engineering, he joined the Russian Air Force in 1954 and became a Cosmonaut in 1960. In August 1962, together with Cosmonaut Andrian Nikolayev, he commanded the Vostok 4 space capsule which made 48 orbits around the Earth in three days. Popovich again went into space as commander of the two-man Soyuz 14, a mission to the Salyut Space Station which lasted more than two weeks in July 1974. He died of a stroke. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
