Dark5's new channel! Subscribe to Dark Docs: http://bit.ly/DarkDocs In early February 1961, two Italian radio operators, the Judica-Cordiglia brothers, reportedly received an extraordinary transmission. The brothers had spent the previous year holed up in a makeshift listening station in an old German bunker with their equipment pointed towards the stars, hoping to listen in on the early space expeditions being mounted by both the United States and Soviet Union at the time. The incoming broadcasts of February 1961 were unusual, though, and featured muffled gasping noises and what sounded like a human being struggling to breathe. Another signal, a faint pulse, was also heard shortly after. The brothers played the recordings for their father, a cardiologist, who believed that the soft pulse was a failing human heartbeat. If that were true, it would mean that someone, the Soviets or the Americans, had successfully launched a man into space for the first time and that the brave pioneer likely never returned alive...


Vladimir Lenin : Lost cosmonauts? No no, we call orbit gulag. Less mouths to feed. You would understand. You take this down or the Soviet state will do so for you

efekok : can we call this "SPACE GULAG"?

terrahawk2003 : It does make you wonder how many people have died in space

DATING HARLEY QUINN : Here in Bulgaria is is open knowledge that the Russians lost several early pioneers in space - open as in taught in school. That is not proof one way or the other but it is interesting.

Arku : Being from a former Soviet state, I can with 100% certainty tell you that things were covered up. It was a very Soviet thing to do. You never spoke of anything that failed or didn't go as planned. Only victories and successes were shouted at you from every radio, tv and newspaper. There's no reason o cover some of these things up, sure, but they were covered up anyway.

Neil Legacy : My friends dad was a Russian engineer for Space program,he said that their was 16 astronauts killed before they actually succeeded in sending a man in space.His father passed away many year ago so I'm not sure if he lying about it,but he said that Russia had no qualms about sending men to their death.

Navigator : Only a ignorant fool would believe that USA made every accomplishment in first try..

Mike Oliver : To those, human and otherwise, who didn't make it home. 🚀

Kevin McGlothlin : Excellent video. I do like how you give alternative "debunk" informaiton and genualy giving us food for thought.

benwyso810 : I'd like to see a video on the Philadelphia Experiment

904 CZV : I’ve heard the ‘female’ cosmonaut recording but not the others described in this video. Interesting!

sandmanhh67 : You keep asking why the Soviiets would cover accidents up. I guess that is because you are young and didnt grow up during that period, and so find it difficult to understand the Soviet mindset. NO failure was acceptable as it was seen as a failure for Communism, and any failure was covered up both internally and externally. This was at the hight of the Cold War propoganda war remember, and in the USSR life was cheap when it came to protecting the image of the state. As for the lack of documentation....again thats down to a lack of understanding of the USSR mindset. Nothing much changed after the fall of communism, and if you think it has I suggest you have a go at accessing even basic military research materials in modern day Russia. In the USSR the space program was subject to the highest levels of security and secrecy, so if you think those documents will be available to foriegners you really are daft. The equivalent in the UK would be you as an American trying to access research documents from Porton Down.

Dmitry Pasyutin : I heard this recording and I recognized a clear italian accent in it. I'm Russian btw

Ian Macfarlane : Fantastic video as always. I've always leant towards these stories being true, although the reasoning for the cover ups made no sense, and I thought that it was tremendously sad that pioneers would die lonely & horrible deaths without recognition. Because of that it's great to hear that there is serious doubt about the veracity of these claims. I don't really get the idea of national 'shame' in this respect. Many countries have lost pioneers and they are usually regarded as heroes - in the UK people like Scott, Shackleton or Donald Campbell are held in the highest regard.

Agnostic Monk : I always thought these recordings were faked to disgrace the Soviets, like they were launching people into Space without employing proper safety measures.

The Unambiguous : Well flat earthers could give you this answers instantly with no facts but on theories

scorpJon : "drifting away from orbit" ? is that new internet physics?

TheDroidBay : The original upload did have the actual recordings, but a copyright strike came up: Timestamp 1:13, Source: audio, Claimant: Stalin

Kevin Tomes : A bit more than I've seen on the subject before. Nice.

Anonymous Anonymous : we don't know that noone else recorded distress calls,imagine how much money the soviets would pay you to keep the tapes a secret,or what they'd do to you so you couldn't release said tapes...the mexican cartels refer to it as "silver or lead" but either way you're not talking

Darth Black and Mild : I love these docs. But I would double check the pronunciation of the Russian last names. Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, for example is mispronounced. Just an FYI. Keep up the good work!

Scott Crabtree : If, by chance, you're one of the one's that don't know anything about, Cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov. Please, do yourself a favor and learn his story. He was a good and honorable person, to say the very least.

sintwoOone : So.... Their "father" just happened to be a cardiologist? And this anomoly just happened to contain a "heartbeat" on it?

Saila Sobriquet : Well-balanced. Good job!

Aaron : I don’t know why but seeing both *cosmonaut* and *astronaut* in the same title to refer to the same people gets on my nerves a little bit.

Frank Magnotto : Another great video, I’ve heard all these recordings, but didn’t know most of the other information you presented. As far as future videos, I would love to see your take on the Skinwalker Ranch.

Thot Officer #69 : Am I the only one that urges to do this in Kerbal Space Program?

Sub Zero : The Great Gulag in the Sky

Astto : The Earth is round, not flat. Impossible for them all to be listening with out rebroadcasting. And they probably just gave some local people basic training and sent them up with shuttles. They probably ran out of chimps.

Jay Ramsey : The Italian brothers' tapes are super fake. The USSR still could have lost cosmonauts though. It'd be interesting to find out one way or the other with certainty.

Timothy Thayer : I really do enjoy these Dark Docs. More than the original Dark 5 content, actually. I like that I can play them while I’m doing something else. I like to watch YouTube while I cook or fold laundry. Thanks for making these, Dark 5!

babalon 777 : Cosmonauts are the most incredibly brave people I can think of, regardless of the circumstances. Much respest! ...an American admirer

nadal pushnof : nice video but you really need to work on how to say Uri Gagarin. BTW, i'm Russian and its pronounced Uri Gagarian.

Aurobindo Ghosh : the first man in space may have been the only man left there in outer space

Dan Fadden : One of my favorite narrators. You would be great at audio books. Wouldn't surprise me if you already do that! Great job!

Panic : I like this channel more than your other one, I'm so busy lately I can't even spare the time to read for 2 minutes ha. Keep up the good work!

Vincent Ciccone : Haha, guess who's voice this is. 🤣🤣😂😂

Pepe : I wouldn't be surprised since negative news are being censored and information kept hidden by the state in communist shitholes.

ramairgto72 : A heart beat? I can't hear people on a 2018 speakerphone. That is 3 day old fish, I ain't buying it, and thank you Dark Docs for being "real".

Damarys Dingui : That was truly interesting and scary.. I wonder what kind of experience those Cosmonauts face when they lost in space like that.. Thanks for the awesome video..👍👌

André Perron : To say that there's no reason for these cover-ups means you do not understand the nature of communism in soviet Russia.

JordanK illian : Musical chairs is the original battle royale

Dragon Alchemy : The narrator is on point. Excellent vids, gentlemen.

Tim Parker : Yuri Gog er rin...? Wow How about Gagarian. Ga gare re in

kevin Jhonson : "a failing heart beat" ya right my cell in 2019 is muffled half the time.

The Top Cat : The early space-race stuff has always been my favorite topic, thanks!

Marcus W : No that was aliens they came to this planet looking for intelligent life.... they gasped and said “oh honey no, non here moving on” that is what happened lol 😂

Arthur Cooperman : Imagine just drifting away from earth knowing you will die in space and no one is going to save you. Gives me chills.

Jonathan Hankins : The Soviets loved to put a "1" after mission names, even if one or more previous attempts had failed. The rocked that move with some of their lunar probes.
