The exact cause of the air accident in which the first astronaut Yuri Gagarin was killed remains a mystery as accounts abound about the cause of the accident. The astronaut Boris Volinov revealed to Sputnik that one of the accounts is that the Gagarin plane collided with an atmospheric probe, a device weighing about a kilogram, and it is impossible for the pilot to see it when his plane is flying at great speed.
According to Volinov, it is impossible to get to know what really happened.
Gagarin was killed, on March 27, 1968, while on a training flight on a MiG-15 OTA plane, which was also boarded by the trained pilot, Vladimir Seriugin.
And it was said in an official version that their plane collapsed due to a sudden change in the air situation, and hit the ground. And Gagarin and Siriugen were killed. The investigation did not reveal any malfunctions in the plane.
Today marks April 12, the 60th anniversary of Gagarin’s first space flight, to become the first human to radiate the unknowns of space, according to Sputnik.
