Caption: Soviet cosmonaut Gherman Titov (1935-2000), in 1961, training in a module of the Vostok 2 spacecraft. Major Titov was the second person in orbit. He completed 17 orbits of the Earth on 6- 7th August 1961, just four months after Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space. He ate two meals and slept aboard the Vostok 2 spacecraft before re-entering the Earth's atmosphere after 25 hours in space. He 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.
