The Soyuz capsule is depressurized and Leonov spacewalks along handholds to climb into the docked lander. He descends on retrorockets to a mile above the cratered surface. The rocket engine is jettisoned and Leonov has just one minute to use the lander's remaining engine to make a soft landing. He needs the use the same engine and therefore save enough fuel to get back off the lunar surface!
This is the loneliest experience a human has ever had. He's 250,000 miles from Earth crammed inside a phone booth size cockpit plummeting toward a primeval landscape untouched for billions of years.
Stepping off the lander, and before 1 billion TV viewers (assuming the Soviets bring along a TV camera) Leonov says something like: ". . .one giant leap for Socialism" (just kidding).
After a four-hour moon walk to collect rock and soil samples, and leave behind a telerobotic mini-rover, Leonov blasts back off to rendezvous with the Soyuz. There's no time for sleep when you are the only man on the moon!
The blood-red flag of the USSR, emblazoned with the infamous hammer & sickle, remains a silent sentinel at the landing site for countless centuries to come.
