On this day in History 3/18

On this day in 1965, USSR’s Alexey Leonov took the first spacewalk. Soviet cosmonaut Alexey Leonov emerges from his spacecraft and spends 12 minutes suspended in outer space, with only a tether connecting him to his craft. It’s humankind’s first “extravehicular activity,” or EVA.
