The flight was an almost complete success, marred only by a bout of space sickness, a malfunctioning heater that allowed the inside temperature to drop to 6.1°C (43°F), and a troublesome re-entry when the re-entry module failed to separate cleanly from its service module.
The re-entry capsule was unfortunately destroyed during development of the Voskhod spacecraft.
As of 2003, Titov remains the youngest person to reach space.
