The Spacewalker

The Spacewalker

The 2017 movie successfully tells the story above, the story of humanity’s first-ever spacewalk. Two men in a tiny spaceship, without proper testing, facing the complete unknown.

Voskhod 2 (English: ‘Sunrise-2’) was a Soviet manned space mission in March 1965. The Vostok-based Voskhod 3KD spacecraft with two crew members on board, Pavel Belyayev, and Alexey Leonov, was equipped with an inflatable airlock. On March 18, 1965, it established another milestone in space exploration when Alexey Leonov became the first person to leave the spacecraft in a specialized spacesuit to conduct a 12-minute 9-seconds “spacewalk”.
