‘I was surrounded by stars, floating without control,’ recalls the cosmonaut who made history 52 years ago on a mission that nearly cost him his life …
Alexei Leonov opened the airlock to his tiny space capsule while orbiting the Earth, and stepped into both the unknown and the history books. For 12 minutes the Soviet cosmonaut floated above our planet, tethered to his ship by a 16ft cable. In doing so, Leonov became the first person to walk in space.
Space Lectures are proud to confirm that Alexei Leonov, retired Soviet/Russian cosmonaut, Air Force Major general, a writer and an artist will be joining us on Saturday 24th June 2017 … a rare opportunity to see and hear first-hand a pioneer from the golden age of manned spaceflight.
