Celebrating 52nd Anniversary of FIRST Manned Flight into SPACE! Yuriy Gagarin! 

Dear friends, 52 years back on 12 April 1961 at 9:07 a.m. (Moscow time), Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was launched from Baikonur, in the Kazakh SSR on the Vostok 1 rocket, and became the first human being to go into outer space. Gagarin made one orbit of the Earth before re-entering, and landed at 10:55 a.m., 15 miles southwest of the city of Engels in Russia's Saratov Oblast.
