March 18, 1965 "Voskhod-2" spaceship was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Crew consisting of the captain P.I.Belyaev and co-pilot A.A.Leonov, opened the new chapter in space exploration. At 11:32 Belyaev opened the hatch of the ship. Alexei Leonov was in the space vacuum for 12 minutes and then returned to the airlock chamber. During ship landing due to failure of on-board navigation systems of Pavel Belyayev had to become the first in the world to have manually-orientated ship towards the sun and switched on the brake engine. On Belyayev's wrist there had been specially manufactured watch in memory of which "Open Space" series was created.
