The crew of Soyuz 11, Vladislav Volkov, Georgy Dobrovolsky, and Viktor Patsayev, are the only humans to have died outside of the Earth’s atmosphere.


At the site is a memorial monument in the form of a three-sided metallic column. Near the top of the column, on each of the three sides, is the engraved image of the face of each crew member set into a stylized triangle.


The memorial is in open, flat country, far from any populated area. It is within a small, circular, fenced area.
