Published declassified documents from man's first exit into space

Roscosmos posted on its site declassified documents detailing the realization of the program for a person's first exit into outer space, TASS reported.
55 years ago, on March 18, 1965, for the first time in the world, Soviet airliner-cosmonaut Alexei Leonov emerged from the spacecraft into open space. In a special spacesuit with an autonomous system, he moved five meters away from the ship, conducted a series of surveys and observations and returned safely aboard, BTA reports.

"The documents keep visible traces of the creators of the people's rocket and space equipment - notes made by hand by the chief constructor of the Experience Construction Bureau 1 Sergei Korolyov, by the chairman of the state commission Georgiy Tulin, representatives of the state leadership and others prominent figures of Soviet science and technique,” said Wednesday's announcement on Roscosmos's website.

Among the declassified documents is a shorthand from the post-flight reports of the ship's commander “Voskhod-2" Pavel Belyaev and the cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, as well as numerous audio and photomaterials. Alexei Leonov died on October 11, 2019 at 85.
