The Lost Cosmonauts by Ken Hunt


The Lost Cosmonauts by Ken Hunt


Fraught with fatal mishaps and disastrous near misses, the missions of the space race between the Soviet Union and the United States defined an era and exemplified the global socio-political conflict of the Cold War. The Lost Cosmonauts by Ken Hunt is an elegy to humanity’s fledgling efforts to explore outer space, and to those who lost their lives in pursuit of this goal.

This wide-ranging collection of poems looks deep into the largely unexplored cosmos for experiences of the sublime, not only in celestial bodies and mythical figures among the stars, but also in those astronauts and cosmonauts who dared to explore them.
