Michael Adams did not die on a mission. If we included all those who died on outside activities, the list would run very long, including people like Gagarin, Eliot see, Charlie Basset, and a lot more.

Michael Adams died flying the X-15 test vehicle.

During the fatal flight he reached an altitude of 266,000 feet, some sixty thousand feet higher then the point where Columbia broke up yesterday.

At a speed of Mach 5 and an altitude of 233,000 feet the craft yawed to the right and entered a spin. Adams almost recovered at 100,000 feet but the control system circumvents the pilots control and the aircraft broke up.

Adams was posthumously awarded astronaut wings for this flight since he broke the 50 mile standard that Air Force uses to award astronaut wings.

My understanding was that Yuri was not training for a mission but on a currency flight to maintain his pilot proficiency not training for a numbered mission. There have been several other astronauts killed on these training flights that I also chose not to list here.

Just names...

...names of those who would challenge death, defiantly go forward for us all.

They remain eternally in the heavens.
