On 12 April 1961 at 6:06:59 UTC, carrier the rocket Vostok-K, serial number E10316, blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. At 6:18:28 UTC it went into earth orbit, and along with the spacecraft Vostok-1 it put history’s very first cosmonaut into orbit, Senior Lieutenant Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, who 108 minutes later, at 8:05 UTC, parachuted back to earth near the village of Smelovka, now with the rank of major. Y.A. Gagarin returned from space as an international celebrity, with all the pluses and minuses that go with such status.
Yuri A. Gagarin was the ideal candidate to be the first man in space - an excellent athlete, a great student, capable of analysing and unexpected situation quickly, a member of the Soviet Union Communist Party and with a perfect proletarian background. He was born on 9 March 1934 in the town of Klushino to Anna Timofeyevna and Alexey Ivanovich Gagarin, respectively a milkmaid and carpenter at the local cowshed. On 1 September 1941 Yuri started year one at the local school. By the end of summer 1941 he had decided to become a pilot after watching two aeroplanes land, and young Yuri remained forever enthralled by the beautiful machines and wide blue yonder. On 24 May 1945, after the end of the war, the family moved to the town of Gzhatsk.  read more...
