WORLD'S FIRST SPACE WALK
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Who made the first space walk?
The honor for being the first
person to walk in space goes to General Aleksei Arkhipovich Leonov, or Алексе́й
Архи́пович Лео́нов if you prefer, of the Soviet Air Force.
After being blasted into space aboard the Voskhod 2
spacecraft, on March 18, 1965 he made the first ever space walk, lasting
about 20 minutes.
Leonov had problems in re-entering the Voskhod 2 due to his space suit enlarging
and he had to let some air leak out to be able to get back inside.
The first woman to walk in space was Svetlana
Savitskaya who took her stroll on July 25, 1984 while aboard the Salyut 7 space
The credit for
the first space walk by an American goes to astronaut Edward White who stepped
out for a bit on June
03, 1965 during the Gemini 4 mission.
