“The demons of the air together with the Antichrist will perform great wonders on earth and in the atmosphere, and men will become more and more perverted. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against Principalities and Powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Ephesians 6:12
Church Fathers agree that the habitat of Demons begins at 15 cubits above the Mountain tops or about 29,050 ft. One Church Father says that the habitat of Demons extends to the moon?
Either way Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was in the habitat of Demons for a spell.
Death of Yuri Gagarin:
On March 27, 1968, Yuri Gagarin, the first man to go into space, died together with pilot Vladimir Seryogin during a routine training flight, after the MiG-15 jet fighter they were flying crashed near Novosyolovo in the Soviet Union.
After posting his thesis in the engineer training academy of the Soviet Air Force named after N. E. Zhukov and an extended flight pause, Yuri Gagarin began his summer practice, which were some training flights with the MiG-15UTI aircraft, which was used for training purposes. Between 13 and 22 March 1968 he performed 18 flights, completing a total of 7 hours. Before he was being allowed to perform flights independently, he had to do another two controlled flights alongside the pilot, colonel and Hero of the Soviet Union Vladimir Seryogin.
In 10:18 of the morning of March 27, 1968, Gagarin and Seryogin took off from Chkalovsky Air Base in Shchyolkovo, a settlement close to Moscow.During the time of the take off the visibility conditions were normal, but the height of the lower cloud limit was 600 meters above the winter surface.The fulfilling of the piloting duties was set not to last beyond 20 minutes, but in 10:27, 8 minutes after he started, Gagarin announced the accomplishment of the mission. He asked for a permission to return and fly to the base and received it at 10:29. At 10:30, Moscow Time, contact was lost with the aircraft.
When it became clear that the aircraft was out of fuel, a research mission was initiated, which lasted more than 3 hours. In 14:50 one of the helicopters managed to receive an image from the debris of the aircraft approximately 65 kilometers from the airport, close to Novosyolovo, 18 kilometers away from Kirzhacha in Vladimir Oblast. In the morning of the next day the government commission's members started their work in the debris of the aircraft. Parts of Gagarin and Seryogin's body were found, which were recognized by relatives and colleagues. In the site of the crash, various objects were found, such as personal items of the pilots, a pocket edition book with navigation rules and photos of Sergei Korolyov. In the branch of a tree the flight jacket of Gagarin with some food coupons was found.Due to the way Gagarin's bones from his hand were broken, the investigators concluded that he hadn't given up the joystick during the crash.

Here read from St. Thomas Aquinas on where Demons reside...
Article 4. Whether our atmosphere is the demons' place of punishment?
Objection 1. It would seem that this atmosphere is not the demons' place of punishment. For a demon is a spiritual nature. But a spiritual nature is not affected by place. Therefore there is no place of punishment for demons.
Objection 2. Further, man's sin is not graver than the demons'. But man's place of punishment is hell. Much more, therefore, is it the demons' place of punishment; and consequently not the darksome atmosphere.
Objection 3. Further, the demons are punished with the pain of fire. But there is no fire in the darksome atmosphere. Therefore the darksome atmosphere is not the place of punishment for the demons.
On the contrary, Augustine says (Gen. ad lit. iii, 10), that "the darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day."
I answer that, The angels in their own nature stand midway between God and men. Now the order of Divine providence so disposes, that it procures the welfare of the inferior orders through the superior. But man's welfare is disposed by Divine providence in two ways: first of all, directly, when a man is brought unto good and withheld from evil; and this is fittingly done through the good angels. In another way, indirectly, as when anyone assailed is exercised by fighting against opposition. It was fitting for this procuring of man's welfare to be brought about through the wicked spirits, lest they should cease to be of service in the natural order. Consequently a twofold place of punishment is due to the demons: one, by reason of their sin, and this is hell; and another, in order that they may tempt men, and thus the darksome atmosphere is their due place of punishment.
Now the procuring of men's salvation is prolonged even to the judgment day: consequently, the ministry of the angels and wrestling with demons endure until then. Hence until then the good angels are sent to us here; and the demons are in this dark atmosphere for our trial: although some of them are even now in hell, to torment those whom they have led astray; just as some of the good angels are with the holy souls in heaven. But after the judgment day all the wicked, both men and angels, will be in hell, and the good in heaven.
Reply to Objection 1. A place is not penal to angel or soul as if affecting the nature by changing it, but as affecting the will by saddening it: because the angel or the soul apprehends that it is in a place not agreeable to its will.
Reply to Objection 2. One soul is not set over another in the order of nature, as the demons are over men in the order of nature; consequently there is no parallel.
Reply to Objection 3. Some have maintained that the pain of sense for demons and souls is postponed until the judgment day: and that the beatitude of the saints is likewise postponed until the judgment day. But this is erroneous, and contrary to the teaching of the Apostle (2 Corinthians 5:1): "If our earthly house of this habitation be dissolved, we have a house in heaven." Others, again, while not admitting the same of souls, admit it as to demons. But it is better to say that the same judgment is passed upon wicked souls and wicked angels, even as on good souls and good angels.
Consequently, it must be said that, although a heavenly place belongs to the glory of the angels, yet their glory is not lessened by their coming to us, for they consider that place to be their own; in the same way as we say that the bishop's honor is not lessened while he is not actually sitting on his throne. In like manner it must be said, that although the demons are not actually bound within the fire of hell while they are in this dark atmosphere, nevertheless their punishment is none the less; because they know that such confinement is their due. Hence it is said in a gloss upon James 3:6: "They carry fire of hell with them wherever they go." Nor is this contrary to what is said (Luke 8:31), "They besought the Lord not to cast them into the abyss"; for they asked for this, deeming it to be a punishment for them to be cast out of a place where they could injure men. Hence it is stated, "They [Vulg. 'He'] besought Him that He would not expel them [Vulg. 'him'] out of the country" (Mark 5:10).
