Voskhod 1 (Russian: Восход-1) was the first spaceflight to carry more than one person into space and the first flight without space suits. Vostok 6 was the first Human spaceflight mission to carry a woman cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, into space Voskhod 2 (Восход 2 "Dawn 2" was a Soviet manned space mission in March 1965 The Voskhod programme (Восход translated as "dawn", "ascent") was a Soviet Human spaceflight project Russian ( transliteration:,) is the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia, the most widely spoken of the Slavic languages A space suit is a complex system of Garments equipment and environmental systems designed to keep a person alive and comfortable in the harsh environment of outer space The Soviet mission was specifically planned to beat the U.S. Gemini program to this milestone. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR was a constitutionally Socialist state that existed in Eurasia from 1922 to 1991 The United States of America —commonly referred to as the Team The Gemini program was managed by the Manned Spacecraft Center Houston Texas under direction of the Office of Manned Space Flight NASA Headquarters Washington As a further propaganda coup, the spacecraft was claimed to have carried into orbit a fragment of a communard banner from the Paris Commune of 1871. Propaganda is a concerted set of messages aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of large numbers of people The Paris Commune (La Commune de Paris was a Government that briefly ruled Paris from 18 March (more formally from 26 March) to 28 May Year 1871 ( MDCCCLXXI) was a Common year starting on Sunday (link will display the full calendar of the Gregorian calendar (or a Common
The Voskhod spacecraft was basically a Vostok spacecraft that had a backup, solid fuel retro rocket added to the top of the descent module. The Voskhod (Восход Voschod or Wosschod translated as "Rising") was a Spacecraft built by the Soviet Union 's space program for Human The ejection seat was removed and three crew couches were added to the interior at a 90 degree angle to that of the Vostok crew position. There was no provision for crew escape in the event of a launch or landing emergency. A solid fuel braking rocket was also added to the parachute lines to provide for a softer landing at touchdown. A retrorocket (short for retrograde rocket) is a Rocket engine used to provide Thrust opposing the motion of a Spacecraft, thereby causing it This was necessary because, unlike the Vostok, the crew lands with the Voskhod descent module.
On board were three cosmonauts: Vladimir Komarov, who piloted the craft; Konstantin Feoktistov, an engineer who had been part of the Sputnik and Vostok design teams; and Boris Yegorov, a doctor. Vladimir Komarov redirects here for the botanist see Vladimir Leontyevich Komarov. Konstantin Petrovich Feoktistov ( Russian: Константин Петрович Феоктистов born February 7, 1926 in Voronezh) The Vostok programme (Восто́к translated as "East") was a Soviet Human spaceflight project that succeeded in putting a person into Boris Borisovich Yegorov ( Russian: Борис Борисович Егоров November 26, 1937, Moscow – September 12, 1994
Much of the mission was devoted to biomedical research and to study of how a multi-disciplinary team could work together in space. The mission was probably cut short by political upheaval back on Earth surrounding the coup that deposed Nikita Khrushchev. Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev (April 17 1894 – September 11 1971 served as First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964 following The cramped conditions of the crew have also been suggested as a factor ruling out a longer duration flight.
