Caption: Soviet cosmonauts Komarov (far right), Feoktistov (centre) and Yegorov (far left), seen after their landing in the Voskhod 1 spacecraft. This mission, launched on 12 October 1964, was the first to carry more than two cosmonauts. Boris B. Yegorov (1937-1994) was a physician. Konstantin P. Feoktistov (1926-2009) was present in his role as a space scientist. Vladimir M. Komarov (1927- 1967) was the pilot. He was the only one to fly in space again, being the test pilot for Soyuz 1. However, the landing parachutes for Soyuz 1 failed to deploy, and Komarov was killed in the crash landing.
