Caption: Voskhod 2 spacecraft. Replica model of the Soviet spacecraft Voskhod 2. This spacecraft launched on 18 March 1965, carrying Alexei A. Leonov (flight engineer) and Pavel I. Belyayev (commander). It was during this mission that Leonov performed his historic spacewalk (EVA), the first ever. There were two Voskhod missions, the spacecraft being a stripped down version of a Vostok spacecraft. The Voskhod 1 carried three cosmonauts. Voskhod 2 was designed for two cosmonauts and had an inflatable airlock for Leonov's spacewalk. The round capsule was 2.4 metres in diameter. Later Voskhod missions were cancelled after problems with Voskhod 2.
