Does anybody have a link to a descent Leonov spacewalk photo or two they could pass along? I realize the originals aren't 70mm photos but there has to be something better than 500 pixels of this historical moment!
Something along the lines of these from Science Photo Library: 1 | 2 | 3
|Robert Pearlman||You can purchase those photos as prints directly from Science Photo Library. For example, an 8x10 print is $16.|
|FullThrottle||Thanks for the link! I didn't realize that, my email went unreplied so far. I was hoping for something to download and print this weekend (Leonov is in town speaking tomorrow) but if I miss out I will order one for next time.|
|levasseurj||For the 50th anniversary of the first EVAs, I'm curating an exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum. We'd like to feature a large-scale print of Leonov during his spacewalk, but believe it was only recorded via a television camera. Can somebody verify that?|
Does anyone know of a print that could be scanned and reproduced - large enough to be featured like artwork in an exhibit? Many thanks!

|Captain Apollo||You've seen this colour film of Leonov's spacewalk? |
|David C||Looks to me like Leonov had a dark visor inside his face plate. Can anyone confirm this?|
|jasonelam||Yes, several of the preflight films I've seen show them lowering an internal visor over their eyes with a lever on the side of their helmets.|
|Lou Chinal||Did Leonov wear a watch on his EVA?|
|DG27||Based on the images in the video, it does not appear that he was wearing a watch. The dual straps on the wrist are the restraint straps with pull tabs for the Berkut glove. Pressure gauge is on the right arm. Perhaps he was wearing one under the suit.|
That is a great video. Thanks for sharing it. Anyone know where to get a copy of the video?
|kyra||I believe all the photography of this spacewalk comes from stills made from the movie camera mounted on the airlock. In short, there are no high resolution of this spacewalk that look good beyond about half page size. There was a b/w closed circuit camera in a slightly different perspective and those were relayed to the ground and are more grainy. RIA Novosti and Science Direct seem to own the rights to most of these images.|
