Georgiy Timofeevich Dobrovolskiy
Birth: Jun. 1, 1928
Death: Jun. 30, 1971

Cosmonaut. Born in Odessa, Ukraine, he had the unfortunate distinction of being part of the second Soviet crew to die during a space flight. On June 6, 1971, he was pilot in command of the Soyuz-11 spacecraft with Cosmonauts V.N. Volkov and V.I. Patsaev, launched under the program of the first manned mission to the Salyut space station. During the mission, they established a new world record of duration in space flight with 23 days 18 hours 21 minutes and 43 seconds. Upon re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere the capsule depressurized and all three crew members perished. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
