Caption

Crew of the Voskhod 1 spacecraft. Soviet cosmonauts Konstantin Feoktistov (left, 1926-2009), Boris Yegorov (centre, 1937-1994) and Vladimir Komarov (right, 1927-1967), after landing the Voskhod 1 spacecraft. They had launched on 12 October 1964 from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, in what was the first spaceflight to carry three people. They orbited the Earth 16 times, and landed on 13 October 1964. Komarov, the pilot, would later be killed during the uncontrolled landing of the Soyuz 1 spacecraft. Yegorov, a doctor, resumed his medical career. Feoktistov, an engineer, never flew again due to medical reasons, but later became head of the Soviet space design bureau. All three cosmonauts were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.
