Leonov-the first Space Walker!

Alexey Leonov on 1965 USSR 10 kopek stamp.

Leonov was outside the spacecraft for  twelve minutes and nine seconds
On Eighteenth March Nineteen Sixty Five- fifty three years ago
Connected to the craft by a five meter tether! Wonderful feat-
At the end,  his spacesuit inflated in the vacuum  to the point
Where he could not re-enter the airlock-. opening a valve to allow
Some of the suit’s pressure to bleed off and  got back inside the capsule.

The great Creator, Preserver and Destroyer Lord Almighty
Made the Universe-earth, sky, space and all living beings mighty
To explore the space and hills, seas and forests sky and the planets
And exploit for the world’s greater peace and joy, health and happiness!
Man in his wisdom made his body and mind, intelligence in full
Set his feet into the space and planets outside his earth
And the search goes on – with successes- set goal higher in mirth!

  1. Nice Afternoon Sir!
    I have seen the the stamp of USSR 1965 indicating LEONOV in the space!

    Great man with great success and with great courage. Let this day bring ADDED GLORY to him.
    Space research goes on and goes on.
    We may to live for another 1000 years to witness the wonders of the space!

    Yours
