I'm hoping to find a descent quality and sized image of Alexei Leonov during the first spacewalk on Voskhod 2. So far I'm not having much luck, I've found a few 500 pixel images but they wouldn't look very good printed out.

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

You can purchase those photos as prints directly from Science Photo Library. For example, an 8x10 print is $16.

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.

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!

You've seen this colour film of Leonov's spacewalk?

Looks to me like Leonov had a dark visor inside his face plate. Can anyone confirm this?

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.
