“LUDMILA: The Life of a Lost Cosmonaut” Artist talk Heather Gentleman May 19, 2021

May 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Fifty years ago on May 19th, 1961, amateur radio enthusiasts, the Judica-Cordiglia brothers recorded a Soviet space transmission of a cosmonaut’s re-entry into earth’s atmosphere.  

These would be her last words. 

Her true identity was unknown, coined Ludmila by newspaper pundits. Heather Gentleman has stitched together a life that may have existed, providing essence to her voice, her memory and her courage.
