Sketch A Day, Day 66

Yuri was an interesting fellow–seemingly fearless, but not foolish, he did what no other man had ever done up until that point. Robert Krulwich, of Radio Lab wrote this amazing piece that paints a portrait of Gregarian after he had become a national hero for his space mission, during a later mission. He tried to be a good friend to a fellow cosmonaut who was also caught up in the race to the stars. It did not end well and Gregarian, by this account, was never the same. Yuri passed away in a plane crash in 1968.
