A beautiful BBC News feature tells the story of Russian cosmonaut Alexei Leonov who became the first human to perform a spacewalk as part of the Voskhod 2 mission.
The story is told using long scroll to tell the story featuring photos, interviews, and video.
Really nice example of a web animated product explainer, using the technique of exploded view drawing, a graphic invention from the renaissance.
A nearly 600 year old approach is used because it does such a good job of telling a story in a simple way.
