Cosmonauts Leonov (right) and Belyayev in their capsule prior to the Voskhod-2 mission in 1965. Pavel Ivanovich Belyayev (1925-70) and Aleksei Arkhipovich Leonov (1934 - 2019) flew on the Voskhod 2 mission on 18-19 March 1965. During this flight, Leonov became the first person to make a space walk. Belyayev never flew into space again, but Leonov was part of the 1974 Apollo-Soyuz Test project where Russian and American spacecraft docked in orbit.
