Yaroslav Kirillovich Golovanov

Yaroslav Golovanov was selected to train as an cosmonaut, after the idea of Korolyov to send a journalist into space. By February 1965, Korolyov had approved the application of both Golovanov and Yuri Letunov, a TV resporter. They both qualified in the medical tests, but following Korolyov's death in January 1966 and the Soyuz 1 tragedy, their dream of going to space ended. Above: two signed covers and one latter from Yaroslav Golovanov, an early soviet unflown cosmonaut.
