# Who was the first person to shave in space?

A quick internet search shows that Apollo 11 astronauts shaved, but there were some Apollo missions earlier than that were also of similar week-like duration and the Soviet Union had astronauts in space as well.

Is it known who was the first person to shave in space (i.e. in Earth orbit or beyond)?

• +1 for finding such an authoritative source on shaving in space! "...there is actually at least 30 minutes’ worth of presentation material on the topic of shaving in spaceflight." Great answer and great link! – uhoh Jul 29 '19 at 22:10
