55х75 cm, acrylic on canvas
A.Leonov and P.Belyayev 16-19 Marth 1965
The cosmonauts are waiting for the rescue team deep in Siberia, you can see the descent vehicle(capsule) near them.
This was the first time ever a man performed EVA. So the circle scheme shows as with little pictures how actually the process of launch and descending was performed.
That was also very difficult flight, everything that could go wrong, went wrong, but they returned home. A.Leonov and P.Belyayev waited in cold forest for the rescue team for about two days after their landing, and this is also the part of their heroic deed.
The cosmonaut Leonov is also an artist! And that was a surprise to discover, that my paintings included this were exhibited in the same hall with his canvases!
