Caption: Gherman Titov (1935-2000), Soviet cosmonaut, in his military uniform. Titov was the second person to orbit the Earth. Launched in the Vostok 2 spacecraft, he orbited the Earth 17 times from 6-7 August 1961, just four months after Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space. Titov ate two meals and slept in orbit before re-entering the Earth's atmosphere after 25 hours in space. He received many awards and decorations for his pioneering space flight. He later became a test pilot, but never returned to space. In 1995 he was elected to the Duma, the Russian Parliament, as a member of the Communist Party. Photographed in 1967.
