Krikalev 2013, 100x125 cm
Sergei Krikalev, a Russian Cosmonaut who holds the record for the most time spent in space by a human being at over 803 days. While he floated in space, the USSR collapsed and he was left in space alone for four months. He could watch from the space how his country fall into decay. In 1991, he was stranded at Mir (mir = peace in russian) for almost four additional months, when the Soviet Union collapsed.
