Boris Belousov (cosmonaut)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Boris Nikolayevich Belousov (Russian: Бори́с Никола́евич Белоу́сов; July 28, 1930 – June 27, 1998) was a Soviet cosmonaut.[1] In 1962-1968 he was one of the earlier members of the Cosmonaut Squadron but never flew into space.

In 1960 he graduated from the faculty of electrical engineering of A.F. Mozhaysky Military-Space Academy.[2]

In the late 1980s he wrote numerous letters to the Soviet leadership arguing that he would be the best candidate to break the Guinness record for the oldest person in space but his offer was rejected.[2][3]
