Pyotr Klimuk is a former soviet cosmonaut, awarded hero of the soviet union twice, three orders of Lenin and order for service to the homeland.
Klimuk is a graduate of the Gagarin Air Force Academy and the Lenin Military Political Academy, and and the first Belarusian to perform space travel
after being selected to join the space program a year after entering the Soviet air force in 1964. He’s also my absolute FAVE because we share a birthday (10th July) making him the coolest space tripping cat.
I missed this. Happy belated birthday Pyotr!
