Novosti: Cosmonaut Nikolai Stepanovich Porvatkin (unflown) has died

A moment of silence can be signified by a reply with no words and only a period.

I have had the honour to meet with Porvatkin in Star City on a couple of occasions. He was a modest man who sadly missed out on a flight as the Almaz program was reduced and cancelled. The story of men like him has been lost but I hope we will in the future to record his contribution to the Soviet program.

He will be buried next to his wife in Star City.

Like many in the Soviet program a career not completed without a flight.

Rest in Peace.
Rex

These cosmonaut passings aren't any easier to take than our own American hero's passings.
