Starman : the truth behind the legend of Yuri Gagarin by Jamie Doran( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Czech and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first person to venture into space, gaining worldwide fame in a quick 108-minute journey. Starman tells for the first time Gagarin's personal odyssey from peasant to international icon, his disintegration under the pressure of fame, and his final disillusionment with the USSR. Before President Kennedy had put an American on the moon, Gagarin himself was dead, killed at age thirty-four in a mysterious air crash. Publicly mourned, his death was privately met with relief by the Soviet hierarchy, and the KGB report into his death remains secret. Entwined with Gagarin's history is that of the breathtaking and highly secretive Russian space program. Starman looks behind the scenes of the first great space spectacular, and reveals how it came frighteningly close to destruction. -- Cover p. 4

The android prophecy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For almost a century, Hollywood has been warning of a future during which human beings become enslaved by the machines they have created. Has the time come to take the seemingly outlandish imagination of science fiction seriously? Drawing disturbing conclusions about our possible mechanical domination, this documentary investigates the parallels between movie fantasy and science reality. Over the years innovations in artificial intelligence and biotechnology have made it harder to distinguish man from man-made. Originally conceived as an aid to humanity, robots could be ready to suppress the masses. "I'm an optimist - we have a 51 percent chance of survival," sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke wryly observes. It's time to listen up: life as we know it today was last generation's science fiction

After the death of Salvador Allende in September 1973, Pinochet's secret police established a reign of terror, killing and torturing many of his supporters. With new evidence and key witness testimonies we follow the survivors and relatives as they pursue justice for the missing and unnamed. "We want to know the truth about what happened to Alfonso; like many other families we need an answer about what happened to him". Alfonso Chanfreau's family are fighting for justice against those responsible for his disappearance by challenging the legality of the amnesty that provided immunity for war crimes before 1978. Alfonso was severely tortured by the DINA, Pinochet's secret police, whilst having to watch as his wife Erica, suffered the same fate for eighteen days. Attempts to make them speak ultimately failed. Alfonso was then brought to the infamous German settlement, Colognia Dignidad, where many are thought to have been tortured. Adriana Barquez, who managed to escape, suffered twenty-four days of torture including attacks by dogs, trained to destroy sexual organs. She now lives in her hometown of Talca, where a group of survivors come together to make the journey back to Colognia Dignidad. Exclusive interviews with key Chilean political figures prove the difficulty of holding the guilty to account but the Chanfreau family are determined to continue their fight to bring about justice for Alfonso and the many others subjected to human rights abuses during Pinochet's brutal regime
