(Before It's News)

A three-time cosmonaut aboard the Soviet Union’s Salyut space stations, Georgy Grechko was the first to perform a spacewalk wearing the Russian Orlan spacesuit design still in use today. On Saturday (April 8), Grechko died at a hospital in Moscow at the age of 85. Chosen in 1968 to train for a moon mission that would never launch, he logged more than 134 days on three Soyuz spaceflights between 1975 and 1985.
