The Lost Cosmonauts

Brian Dunning

I'm going to talk about the benefits of applying critical thinking stories that we hear in the popular media, and the example I'll be focusing on is the story of the Lost Cosmonauts: Soviet Cosmonauts supposed to have died in space, but who were erased from history. We have audio recordings, allegedly from these dying Cosmonauts, and we'll apply critical thinking to learn what the real source was.
