TRAGIC OUTCOME

The Soviet's new Soyuz ("union") program dovetailed with the conclusion of Project Gemini. The Soyuz craft was designed for docking and for taking cosmonauts to the Moon.

In April 1967, Soyuz 1 was to rendezvous with a second vehicle, Soyuz 2. The flight, piloted by Vladimir Komorav, ended in tragedy when Soyuz 1 developed serious control problems
early in the flight. Its landing parachute failed to open, and Vladimir Komorav was killed.

Docking attempts continued with the launch of Soyuz 2 and 3 in October 1968. This attempt failed, but both spacecraft returned safely to Earth. Not until January 1969 did Soyuz 4 and 5 achieve a successful docking and crew transfer from one spacecraft to the other. By then, however, the Americans were orbiting 1 astronauts around the Moon.
