Short film: The alleged story of the cosmonaut who burned in space

The brothers Achille and Giovanni Judica-Cordiglia claim they recorded the voice of a Russian cosmonaut as her capsule burned in re-entry on November 1963. This short film contains that recording and dramatizes the events. No matter if it's true or not, the short film is terrifying.

This is the translation of the audio allegedly captured by the brothers:

two...three...four...five...

LISTEN...LISTEN! ...COME IN!

COME IN... COME IN... TALK TO ME!

TALK TO ME!... I AM HOT!... I AM HOT!

While it sounds real, there's no proof that any of this is true. The brothers claim they recorded several Soviet space missions from their radio station at Torre Bert, which are part of the Lost Cosmonauts conspiracy theory—the idea that the Soviet Union had several fatal manned mission failures that were suppressed during the Cold War years to avoid bad publicity.

I don't care if it's true or not. It's a terrifying thing to watch and listen to either way.

The brothers claim that they recorded these events:

  1. May 1960 Unnamed cosmonaut lost when his orbiting space capsule veered off course.
  2. November 1960 The brothers picked up an SOS message in Morse code from a troubled spacecraft.
  3. February 1961 Recorded the suffocation of a cosmonaut.
  4. April 1961 Just prior to Yuri Gagarin's flight, a capsule circled the Earth three times before re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.
  5. May 1961 Weak calls for help from an orbiting capsule.
  6. October 1961 A Soviet spacecraft veered off course and vanished into deep space.
  7. November 1962 A space capsule bounced off the Earth's atmosphere during re-entry and disappeared.
  8. November 1963 Unnamed female cosmonaut perished on re-entry.
  9. April 1964 Cosmonaut lost when capsule burnt up on re-entry.

These were more than 50 years ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, and we still don' t know none of these cosmonauts' names, not a single one. No relatives, no friends, no colleagues, nobody who could tell a word about this events? I cannot beleive that no Russian journalist wanted to investigate this deeply. Also the US secret service should have known all this nine rocket launch events in the heat of the space race. So while I can imagine that maybe there could have been one or two fatal launch attempt before Gagarin, but I don't think these recordings are real and authentic "Soviet space transmissions".
