    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?

    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.

    So, you're saying that the assembly process was according to normal procedures... Why did the stage still fail?

    I’m not sure why I’m bothering, but you know how you can’t see stars when you are in day because of the albedo of the earth?

    Liar!

    As the night is on the other side of the earth, if it's day here, all the stars are clearly on the other side, too!

    Depends on the dynamic range of your camera sensor and whether you have highlight compression or noise reduction on obviously....



    In all seriousness, night time shots of the earth from space feature stars if your able to totally eclipse the sun and the moon.
