IndiaTimes Friday, 11 October 2019 ()
Alexei Leonov, a Soviet-era cosmonaut who was the first man to conduct a spacewalk in 1965, died in Moscow on Friday aged 85 after a long illness. Leonov made history when he left a spacecraft during the Voskhod 2 mission for a spacewalk that lasted 12 minutes and nine seconds. But his return to Earth nearly ended in tragedy when Leonov crash-landed in Siberian woods.
