13h 33min, oct 24, 1962 y - Korabl 11 (Sputnik 22) Failed Mars flyby attempt (USSR)

Description:

Sputnik 22 was an attempted Mars flyby mission, presumably similar to the Mars 1 mission launched 8 days later.

Korabl 11 broke apart after reaching Earth orbit. The debris reentered Earth's atmosphere and was tracked by the U.S. Ballistic Missile Early Warning System in Alaska, who first thought it was a Soviet ICBM attack in response to the ongoing Cuban Missile Crisis.
