Space pin made in the Soviet Union about Andriyan Nikolayev. Andriyan Grigoryevich Nikolayev (1929-2004) was a Soviet cosmonaut.
Nikolayev flew on two space flights: Vostok 3 in 1962, and Soyuz 9 in 1970. On both, he set new endurance records for the longest time a human being had remained in orbit. On 22 January 1969, Nikolayev survived an assassination attempt on Leonid Brezhnev, undertaken by a Soviet Army deserter, Viktor Ilyin.
He left the cosmonaut corps on 26 January 1982. Nikolayev was also the first person to make a television broadcast from space, in August 1962. He married Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman to fly in space (Vostok 6). They had one daughter, Elena Andriyanovna (now a doctor of medicine), before their marriage collapsed. In 2004, Nikolayev died of a heart attack in Cheboksary, the capital of Chuvashia in Russia.
