Craters on the Moon
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.
