What an amazing story! To think about a family living in those difficult conditions, and remaining so fiercely loyal to one other.
I remember how, as a little boy growing up in the Heartland, I would go outdoors with my parents and my sisters and search the night-time summer skies for the satellite Sputnik to glide through the stars overhead. And now, to realize there was another family living in the wilderness of Siberia doing the same thing we were, watching the same satellite passing overhead; it gives me chills!

The Siberian taiga in the Abakan district. Six members of the Lykov family lived in this remote wilderness for more than 40 years—utterly isolated and more than 150 miles from the nearest human settlement.
