Cosmonaut Komarov's cap


Science Museum

Science Museum
London, United Kingdom

The crew of Voskhod 1 were the first cosmonauts to launch into orbit without spacesuits, but took warm garments to protect them from the autumn cold when they landed back on Earth. Commander Komarov gave this cap to Chief Designer Sergei Korolev, whose family still own it.
