Space Attack!


Early Russian space capsules had text on the outside telling people not to be afraid, it's just a human inside, because they feared people's reactions.

Considering that after the USSR fell apart there were parts of Russia that didn't know that the Tzar had been overthrown, and these were the parts of Russia that the space capsules were going to land in, this was not an unrealistic fear.

"don't worry. Human inside."

I don't know how much I'd trust a sign that said "don't be afraid, there's humans inside".

It is very likely that the average Soviet citizen would be surprised considering that the only people who would know of an active Soviet space mission were the cosmonauts, the launch crew, and a few politicos. And NASA who would detect the launch and track the spacecraft. The Soviet public would only find out about a mission once/if it was successful.

Another thing,; To avoid injury, the cosmonaut escaped with an ejecton seat before the capsule landed with a hard, heavy thud. American capsules made relativeloy soft landings in the sea.
