On 18 March 1965, Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov took the first spacewalk. He became the first person to leave the confines of his spacecraft while in orbit and float in the vacuum of space. Alexei Leonov, who with Pavel Belyayev was flying onboard the Soviet “Voskhod-2” spacecraft, accomplished the first extra-vehicular activity – EVA, or spacewalk – on what was only the 14th piloted spaceflight in history.
The Russian postal stationery (a post card) devoted to the 50th anniversary of the first spacewalk. Total edition is 15 000 post cards.
