Alexei Leonov, first space walk, 1965 Featured Space Walk Image

Alexei Leonov, first space walk, 1965

First space walk. Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov (born 1934), outside the Voskhod 2 spacecraft in a spacesuit on 18 March 1965, while orbiting the Earth (in the background). This was the world's first extravehicular activity (EVA), or space walk. Voskhod 2 had launched earlier that day, and Leonov exited the spacecraft at 08:30 UTC. He remained outside for 10 minutes, before trying to re-enter. Because his suit had ballooned while outside, he had to let some of his air out before he could successfully re-enter. Cameras mounted on the airlock were meant to record the space walk, but most had to be abandoned due to the problems with Leonov's spacesuit. The CCCP on Leonov's helmet refers to the USSR


Hubble servicing Featured Space Walk Image

Hubble servicing

Hubble Telescope servicing. Astronauts perform an extravehicular activity (EVA or spacewalk) during a space shuttle mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Hubble's solar arrays can be clearly seen at centre left & right. Astronauts Steven Smith and John Grunsfeld are replacing the gyroscopes which control HST's pointing mechanism. The astronauts are strapped to the shuttle's robo- tic arm, known as the remote manipulator system (RMS). This image was taken from the Discovery shuttle's cargo bay during mission STS-103 (19-27 December 1999). Replacing the HST's computer was also part of the servicing. This mission was the 3rd to service the HST since its launch in 1990


First Soviet cosmonaut squad, 1961 Featured Space Walk Image

First Soviet cosmonaut squad, 1961

First Soviet cosmonaut squad, in Sochi, Russia, in May 1961. This photograph was taken soon after the world's first successful orbital flight, by Yuri Gagarin. At centre is Sergei Korolev (1907-1966) the Soviet Union's pioneering rocket scientist, with his wife on his left and Gagarin on his right. Another notable cosmonaut in this picture is Alexei Leonov (second row, far left, born 1934), who, in 1965, became the first man to exit his spacecraft and carry out a space walk. The cosmonaut who is third from the right in the second row is Grigory G. Nelyubov (1934-1966) who was expelled from the cosmonaut squad in disgrace and later airbrushed out of official versions of this photograph. Full list of cosmonauts available on request
