Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Gary Wise (W4EEY), who writes with the following inquiry:
Have you (or your subscribers) ever investigated the supposed radio recordings of the Judica Cordiglia brothers of Italy back in the 1960’s?
Two YouTube videos just crossed my path which sparked the question.
The brothers allegedly recorded transmissions from failed Russian Manned Space flights before the successful flight of Yuri Gagarin. I remember reading about these when I was growing up. The second video contains a snippet of a voice recording from a supposed female cosmonaut as she reports rising cockpit temperatures before she died.
Spooky and sad if true – but certainly a part of radio history if it can be documented.
Wow–I have never heard of these recordings and as you say, Gary, this is quite sad if true.
Post readers: Does anyone have more insight about the Judica Cordiglia brothers recordings? Please comment!
