Vostok ejection seat Featured 21 Sep 2010 Image

Vostok ejection seat

Vostok ejection seat. View of the type of ejection seat fitted to the Vostok spacecraft in 1961-63. The cosmonaut returning to Earth was instructed to eject from the Vostok capsule at an altitude of 7000 metres. This was because the landing forces on the capsule were very high. All Vostok pilots, including Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova, used this type of seat. For many years the Soviets kept these seats a secret. They were worried that their space missions would not be recognised, because international recognition for altitude records required the pilot to remain with their craft until landing. Photographed at the Zvezda factory near Moscow
