Russian phantom cosmonaut, claimed by Judica-Cordiglia brothers to have died in space in 1961 - or 1963.

Died: 1961-05-23.

In March 1965 the newspaper Corriere della Sera published a report of sensational radio intercepts by the Judica-Cordiglia brothers at Torre Bert, Italy. Among these were the reported death of a female cosmonaut lost on 10 November 1963. Later the date was given as 16-19 May or 19-23 May 1961. The brothers say the 'heart-rending' voice can be heard reporting increasing temperatures as the capsule burns up in the atmosphere. Others have difficulty making anything out of the tape at all.
