CONTINUITY: Fifty Years Ago—Remembering Soyuz 11

Here is information about Soyuz 11, whose crew was lost when their re-entry capsule depressurised after undocking from the Salyut 1 space station on June 29th, 1971. They are, to date, the only humans to have died in space (as opposed to in a launch or landing accident while in the Earth's atmosphere). The film shows unsuccessful attempts to revive the crew after landing which some may find disturbing.
