Russian cosmonaut Alexander Serebrov, a veteran of four spaceflights (Soyuz T-7, Soyuz T-8, Soyuz TM-8, Soyuz TM-17) died Tuesday (Nov. 12), according to RIA Novosti, citing a source with the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center. He was 69.
"Today, Alexander died suddenly at home. This was announced about two hours ago," said the source, adding that the date and place of funeral and burial astronaut will be known later.

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

This is very sad news indeed. Alexander was the first cosmonaut I ever met, back in 1992, and subsequently I was honored to have him as a friend. As well as being a great Cosmonaut, he was head of VAKO Soyuz a youth aerospace organization that opened the door to students from outside Russia visiting a "Space Camp" in Star City. I went with the first group of British students there.

Alexander greeted us and was at hand on various days to see how we were doing. He spoke great English, with a characteristic deep voice and a friendly bear like handshake. He was not afraid to speak his mind which was refreshing to hear from any spacefarer. I remember him saying how from space he had seen the oil fires after the first Kuwaiti war and that this was terrible especially as it was also burning up the Earth's oxygen supply.

He was a spacecraft designer as well as a prolific "space walker". One time I met him at his office and he was using a special inhaler. Breathing pure oxygen on so many EVAs had temporarily taken its toll on his voice.

Alexander visited London a few times and spoke at Imperial College. In later years he was a regular at the ASE meetings. I met him in Edinburgh and Prague and also on my trips to Moscow. He was very strong and I remember that at the end of our space camp he eagerly handed out certificates to the students and helped build a fire by chopping wood for the shashlik barbecue; all with the enthusiasm of a boy scout!

He will be very much missed as this was so unexpected and before his time. My deepest sympathy to his family. Thanks Alexander for making Russian space flight more accessible to others as well as being a pioneer in building space stations.
