> 50 лет назад, 24 апреля 1967 года из-за отказа техники при испытании нового космического корабля «Союз-1» погиб один из первых советских космонавтов Владимир Комаров — во время посадки у спускаемого аппарата не вышел основной парашют, а стропы запасного скрутились, не дав ему раскрыться. 
> Владимир Комаров был награжден второй звездой Героя Советского Союза посмертно.

> 50 years ago, on April 24, 1967, due to the failure of equipment during the testing of the new Soyuz-1 spacecraft, one of the first Soviet cosmonauts Vladimir Komarov was killed.  During the landing, the main parachute did not leave the landing gear, and the lines of the reserve were twisted, without having given to it to be opened.  
> Vladimir Komarov was awarded the second star of the Hero of the Soviet Union posthumously.
