Vostok 1 was the first manned space flight. Yuri Gagarin, the only passenger, remained in space for 1h48m and completed one orbit of the earth. Gherman Titov was the second Russian in space, aboard Vostok 2 (6-7 August 1961). Valentina Nikolaeva-Tereshkova was the first woman in space, and Alexei Leonov was the first man to walk in space (on 18 March 1965). Valeri Bykovsky was a cosmonaut aboard Vostok 5 and Georgi Beregovoi was on Soyuz 3 (26 October 1968), the first space flight to take place after the death of Gagarin in a training flight in March that year.
