    The escape system worked and the crew survived. That's not something we've seen before so I'll prefer to look at it from a half glass full perspective and say; Good job engineers!

    I mean, that's great and all but with the current state of roscosmos i would expect things to continue going downhill and who knows what might happen next.


    Years later, in an interview with the American History Channel regarding the flight, Titov claimed that the crew's first action after the escape rocket fired was to deactivate the spacecraft's cockpit voice recorder because, as he put it, "We were swearing".[4]
    Soviet astronauts, legends.
    How about putting someone other than Rogozin to be in charge?

    Nice way to say it fell outa the sky
    Nah, this actually has a specific meaning. Normally the Soyuz descends aerodynamically, generating lift on the way down so it stays higher in the atmosphere for longer. This burns off velocity in a slightly more gentle way, reducing g-forces and heating. Most space vehicles do this in some form.

    These guys came down the hard way, but thankfully not from orbital speed.
