Our socialistic fatherland has gone out to new boundaries in the development of astronautics. A powerful rocket carrier first took out into the endless distances of outer space the multiple-place spaceship, the Voskhod, aboard which there was laboring to accomplish their goal, carrying out a complicated and multilateral program of scientific investigations, a friendly group of astronauts, an engineer, a scientist, and a physician. These researches have uniquely important significance for further long flights of the crews of spaceships. Three in outer space on one ship - such a thing has never happened before. And from the moment when the Voskhod soared upward into the skies and went into its assigned orbit from all corners of our planet there flowed in greetings addressed to the Soviet people and its glorious sons, V. M. Komarov, K. P. Feoktistov, and B. B. Yegorov. The Soviet Union in opening up a new era in the history of mankind maintains the primacy, true to natural law, in the exploration and conquest of outer space. For this serious affair proves to be a component part of that gigantic creative work which the Soviet people is carrying on in accordance with the general line of the Communist party in all branches of economy, science, and culture in the name of mankind for the benefit of mankind.
