My tribute to sacrifice and heroism of soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov. First manned test of "Soyuz-1" spacecraft was full of troubles and errors, a pilot was ready to something like that. He has a mission and he cared his duty till the end - and died in flames of his ship...

Sonnenstein, thank you so much for the translation! A true tale of heroism and sacrifice indeed!

Raphael, thank you a lot!

I have to do this. Now i'll try to translate it shortly frame by frame:

1. Vladimir Komarov is one choosen for test new soviet spacecraft "Soyuz"; previously he has assurance that this flight will be crush (spacecraft was too unprepared for manned flight) - but Komarov take this duty to himself. He doesn't betray other cosmonauts. So, flight starts, he reaches orbit and starts his mission.

2.But left solar panel doesn't open,so predicted fuel of energy is too low to finish mission successfully. Komarov calls Earth and waits to know his fate.

3. Komarov recieved command from Earth Flight Control Center - to finish flight manually (automatic navigation shutted down). Spacecraft decelerates, undocks and precisely falls into atmosphere. But both of parachutes (main and emergency) doesn't open. Height rapidly falls...

4. My sentence: "On Earth i has two burials: in Kremlin Wall - in Moscow, where i born - and in steppes of Orenburg, where i died. But only "Soyuz" spacecraft will stay a true monument for me."

p.s. Today "Soyuz" is most safe and secure spacecraft for manned flight.

Very nice work! I can kind of understand what happened through the images, but would love to see it translated to english as well ;)
