Yeah, and we only know a small fraction of cosmonaut fatalities.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_cosmonauts

1964 October 31: birdstrike : Theodore Freeman was killed when a goose smashed through the cockpit canopy of his T-38 jet trainer. Flying shards of Plexiglas entered the engine intake and caused the engine to flame out. Freeman ejected from the stricken aircraft, but was too close to the ground for his parachute to open properly. The creation of zero-zero ejection seats has eliminated this problem.

Quote
A Zero-zero ejection seat is an ejection seat designed to safely extract upward and land its occupant from a grounded stationary position (i.e., zero altitude and zero airspeed), specifically from aircraft cockpits. The zero-zero capability was developed to help aircrews escape upward from unrecoverable emergency situations during low altitude and/or low speed flight as well as ground mishaps. Before this capability, ejections had to be performed at minimum altitudes and airspeeds.

Also, check this out: The Apollo Archive

AMAZING photos... seriously, thousands.  I have downloaded lots of them.  The moon photos are awe inspiring.  There are hi-res versions of everything.  Also, there is a section with EVA maps for all of the Apollo missions (5) that made it to the moon.  Very cool shit.

There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Which means you're going to eventually, so it might as well be now.
