Gherman Titov, the world's second man in orbit and, at 25, the youngest person to fly into space, has died, aged 65. Titov flew Vostok 2, the fourth manned spaceflight after Yuri Gagarin and the US sub-orbital Mercury missions by Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom, becoming the first person to spend 24 hours in space and apparently the first to suffer from space sickness. Titov, whose mission lasted 1day 1hr 18min to the time of his ejection from Vostok 2, never made another spaceflight.
