Voskhod 2 pilot Alexei Leonov is pictured floating in low Earth orbit while tethered to the Voskhod-3KD No. 4 spacecraft. The first spacewalk lasted 12 minutes. The spacesuit expanded in the vacuum of space forcing Leonov to open a pressure valve in order to reenter the airlock. Leonov carried a suicide pill in case of being abandoned in orbit.

Voskhod 2 Commander Pavel Belyayev and Alexei Leonov returned to Earth on March 19, 1965. The descent module of the Voskhod 2 spacecraft is displayed at the RKK Energiya museum in Korolyov, Russia.

"On March 18, 1965, Aleksei became the first person to step out of a spacecraft and take a stroll in space. The 30-year-old cosmonaut from the Soviet Union became a national hero for his feat of floating outside the Voskod 2 while looking down on Earth for more than 10 minutes."
