Alexei Leonov became the first person to leave a spacecraft in orbit and perform a Extra vehicular Activity - or more commonly known as a space walk. His 24-minute excursion outside Voskhod 2 on 18 March 1965 pioneered the techniques that have evolved into the first moonwalks, space station EVA's, and satellite rescue and repair activities.
A decade later in July 1975, Leonov again participated in a historic space mission as Commander of Soyuz 19, the Soviet spacecraft in the joint Apollo-Soyuz Test Project with the Americans. This was the first international manned space mission, and set the precedent for all future international cooperative manned space flights through to the Shuttle-Mir in the late 1990s and the current International Space Station programme.
