Сегодня был запущен КА "Восход-1"
On October 12, 1964 from Baikonur Cosmodrome the Soviet spaceship Vostok-1 was started. It was the spacecraft for three astronauts constructed in the USSR. That flight lasted 24 h 17 min. It was the first-ever many-placed spaceship with crew without space suits. For the USSR it was the seventh piloted space flight. Khrushchev demanded of the designer Korolyov to place three astronauts at once. But the cabin of "Vostok-1" was designed for two people in space suits therefore it was necessary to place three astronauts in light training suits without space suits. Also there was no place for three catapults so the flight was made without possibility of emergency rescue in case of explosion of the rocket on start.
