"Я делаю этот шаг ради своей страны, своего народа и марксистско-ленинского образа жизни, зная, что сегодня - всего лишь один маленький шаг в путешествии, которое приведет всех нас к звездам. (I take this step for my country, for my people, and for the Marxist-Leninist way of life, knowing that today is but one small step on a journey that will take us all to the stars.)"

-Leonov's controversial first words from the moon

Alexei Leonov is a Soviet cosmonaut and the first man on the moon.

On 18 March 1965, he became the first human to conduct a spacewalk, exiting the capsule during the Voskhod 2 mission. His historic spacewalk lasted, 12 minutes and 9 seconds. The original plan called for 10 minutes.

On June 26 1969, he landed on the moon, becoming the first human to do so.

Behind the scenes[]

  • In the original timeline, Leonov passed away in 2019.
  • In the original timeline, Leonov was originally scheduled to command the first Soviet landing on the Moon, but constant delays brought on by repeat failures of the N1 rocket cancelled those plans.
