When Space Exploration Went Comedically Wrong

There have been some horrible mishaps in space, but we aren’t talking about those things right now. Rather, this is about small episodes that ended up funny, sometimes only in hindsight. Like the time cosmonauts Sergei Krikalev and Aleksandr Volkov manned the Mir Space Station for the glory of the Soviet Union, which collapsed while they were up there. The chaos meant mission control was suddenly in Kazakhstan instead of Russia, with all the confusion that caused. Russia didn’t have the money to bring them home. Well, they are no longer there, so you know that turned out okay eventually. Read that story and four others about goofy shenanigans in space, including two pranks that involved people who shouldn’t even be up there. Yeah, there’s one about farts, too.
