Certainly a man to be respected and admired. I saw him interviewed on TV and he came across as very modest and very likeable.

Data beats opinions most times... that's my opinion, though I have no data on that.

I remember seeing a documentary on the Space Race in the early 1990s, with Leonov being interviewed about the first space walk.

It was potentially very risky, especially depressurising the space suit without getting the bends.
