I respectfully disagree. I would wager there are still at least 3 or 4 manned vehicles in orbit with dead cosmonauts in them. Then there are those who slammed into the ground at terminal velocity (over 500mph. Inexplicably, the sovs preferred land retreival as opposed to water).Coupled with O2 disasters, launch pad explosions and failing to achieve orbit, the Soviets have our NASA dead 3-1.
In 1968, an unmanned vehicle misfired and landed in China. The scientifically primitive chinese were appalled by the use of torsion springs, pulleys and other primitive engineering in the capsule. It is in the Red Army museum somewhere in China..

Well, you may be right. But until there are credible evidence behind it is all urban myths to me, sorry.
