Russian Cosmonaut Grechko Dead at Age 85

Georgiy Grechko was a legendary man in Russia. A cosmonaut, twice received “Hero of USSR” award, was appointed as a first Russian man to go to the Moon (never happened though). Three times he went to space, once was in an outer space, stayed for over 134 days on orbit.  “First days in space are always hard. All cosmonauts get motion sick, no matter how hard they trained and how meticilous was their selection process. First hours in space very hard to work. Very high blood pressure. It seems that you are being hanged up-side-down. So you can’t make sudden moves.” – remembers Georgiy Grechko about his experience in space. Let’s see and read some more:

“When you return from space, it’s hard to walk, hard to eat, hard to sleep. I always think: damn it! I won’t fly again! Never!”, remembered Georgiy. On the photo he is doing his morning excercise, year 1970.
