Alexei Leonov, the first person to ever take a space walk, has died, reports AFP news agency Friday. The Russian cosmonaut has turned 85 years old.

On 18 March 1965, Leonov left his space capsule during the two-headed Voskhod 2 mission of the Soviet Union. He also took a space walk for 12 minutes and 9 seconds.

With the Voskhod space program, the Soviet Union competed with the United States in a space race during the Cold War (1945-1991). The US succeeded in June 1965 in also conducting a successful space walk.
