Cosmonaut weightlessness training. Soviet cosmonaut Aleksei Arkhipovich Leonov (born 1934) testing zero-gravity onboard the TU-104 flying test-bench. Leonov flew on the Voskhod 2 space mission, with Pavel Ivanovich Belyayev, from 18-19th March 1965. During this flight, Leonov became the first person to make a space walk. He wore a 'Berkut' spacesuit which was a modified version of the suit worn by Yuri Gagarin. It had a life support backpack with enough oxygen for only 45 minutes of activity. Movement was very limited.
