Italy's Amazing Amateur Space Watchers
On May 17, 1961, the voices of two men and a woman recorded from space at locations in Italy, Alaska, and Sweden by amateur radio operators. The voices were in a desperate conversation - "Conditions growing worse why don't you answer? ... we are going slower... the world will never know about us . . ." Then silence. The same words were picked up in Alaska and Sweden. Their meaning? No one will know until the Russians choose to talk.
