Yuri Gagarin

50th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space

On 12 April 1961 at 9 o'clock 7 minutes of Moscow time the Spaceship Vostok 

started off the Airport Baikanur with Pilot-Cosmonaut Jury Alekseevich Gagarin on board. After only 108 minutes the cosmonaut landed at a village of Smelovki in Saratov Region. Only 108 minutes the first flight (compare to the duration of the modern flights, proceeding months) proceeded, but these minutes were to become famous in Gagarin's biography.

For the flight Jury Alekseevich Gagarin was awarded titles ”Hero of Soviet Union” and " Space pilot of the USSR", and Lenin's order in the bargain.

Two days later Moscow welcomed the hero of space. On Red Square there took place a meeting devoted to the execution of the first-ever space flight. Thousand people wanted to see Y. A. Gagarin.

Already at the end of April Jury Gagarin made the first foreign trip. "World mission" was sometimes named a trip of the first cosmonaut to countries and to continents that proceeded two years. Gagarin visited a lot of countries, met thousands of people. Kings and presidents, politicians and scientists, actors and musicians considered it as honour to meet him.
