Item:295940709385Original vintage Soviet USSR Space race NASA SpaceX Gagarin manifesto poster. This mini poster belongs to an original set of posters called "SOVIET COSMONAUTIC". Title: SHIP KOSMONAUTS B. M. KOMAPOB, K. P. FEOKTISTOV AND B.B. EGOROV Historical context: The Voskhod (Russian: Восход, "Sunrise") was a spacecraft built by the Soviet Union's space program for human spaceflight as part of the Voskhod programme. It was a development of and a follow-on to the Vostok spacecraft. Voskhod 1 was used for a three-man flight whereas Voskhod 2 had a crew of two. They consisted of a spherical descent module (diameter 2.3 metres (7.5 ft)), which housed the cosmonauts, and instruments, and a conical equipment module (mass 2.27 tonnes or 5,000 pounds, 2.25 m (7.4 ft) long, 2.43 m (8.0 ft) wide), which contained propellant and the engine system. Voskhod was superseded by the Soyuz spacecraft in 1967. Tanslation on the back of the poster (second picture): FIRST SPACE CREW The exploration of outer space by man, the conduct of complex scientific research and technical experiments can most effectively be solved by the crew of cosmonauts of various specialties. The first experience in this area was the flight of the three-seat Voskhod spacecraft launched on October 12, 1964. The crew of the ship consisted of commander Vladimir Mikhailovich Komarov, researcher Konstantin Petrovich Feoktistov and doctor Boris Borisovich Egorov. Each of the cosmonauts carried out the planned research program in “his own field. One of the important tasks of this flight was to study the efficiency and interaction of a group of cosmonauts in flight. The Voskhod spacecraft is significantly different from its predecessor, the Vostok spacecraft. is equipped with a triple cabin and a number of new systems. It has two braking rocket propulsion systems (main and spare), a new ship orientation system and a new television system that allows you to transmit to the Earth I see not only the actions of the astronauts in the cockpit, but also the picture observed by the astronauts from the spacecraft. In addition, the ship is equipped with soft landing engines. The daily orbital flight of Voskhod made it possible to successfully test the spacecraft, carry out scientific and technical experiments, and carry out an extensive program of biomedical research. For the first time in the practice of space flights, cosmonauts flew without space suits. The flight confirmed the great efficiency of the use in space research of crews consisting of cosmonauts of various specialties. In April 1967, V. M. Komarov flew on the Soyuz-1 spacecraft. During the flight, which lasted more than a day, the cosmonaut completed the program for testing the systems of the new spacecraft. As a result of an accidental malfunction of the parachute system during descent, the ship descended at a high speed, which led to the death of the cosmonaut.
