                      Not a documentary but currently reading a great book on Yuri Gagarin called "Starman". So far it's excellent.

                        Sounds like an excellent book, Roy. That reminds me I watched a good Russian documentary on what it's like to go to space, will see if I can find it again and post it up.

                            Boris Chertok's Rockets and People (actually four volumes) and Asif Saddiqi's Challenge to Apollo are considered by NASA to be the best Russian and English histories of of the Soviet space program. Chertok was roughly the equivalent of a NASA deputy administrator at the time of Gagarin's death and had access to the investigation reports and also was a friend of Alexei Leonov who participated in the investigation. Both Chertok and Saddiqi's histories disagree with the Starman account of Gagarin.

Then, as part of an extended mission, New Horizons would visit one or more objects in the Kuiper Belt region beyond Neptune.
