Vladimir Komarov

Few months later, in March of 1965, the Voskhod-2 ship took Pavel Belyayev and Aleksey Leonov for a flight of 26 hours for the space. During this Leonov mission the first man became to carry through one walked space one, remaining 12 minutes is of its ship, in a space suit (SPACEFACTS, 2010). He does not remain doubt of that until the mission of the Voskhod-2 the Soviets led the space race. Its facts in the space were applauded by the press and served as excellent propaganda in favor of the communism. In March of 1965 the Soviets withheld the records of permanence in the space, had sent the only woman to the space and still they had carried through first walked the space one (SPACEFACTS, 2010). They led the Space Race, at least the eyes of the world. But suddenly something happened.

Soon the Voskhod-2 mission the Soviet facts in the space simply had after disappeared of manchetes of periodicals. During all the remaining portion of 1965 and all the year of 1966 no Soviet cosmonaut went up to the space. Meanwhile the North Americans had remained themselves flying to the space and had obtained to break all the Soviet quantitative records and still they had created others. In 1967 a Soviet only came back to the space and, still thus, the flight finished in tragedy, with the death of Vladimir Komarov to the end of the mission, when the parachutes that would have to brake the ship not had opened (SPACEFACTS, 2010). With the accident the Soviet space program lost 18 months in inquiries and changes in the drawing of ship. In this period the North Americans had made great progressos, had created and tested the ships would take that them to Moon (WHITE, 2003; WALNUT, 2005). When the Soviets had come back to fly to the space, already the North Americans could not more reach.
