Detailed description

Throughout its history, people have dreamed of the sky, the stars. Gradually, technological progress, moving forward all the human dream that turns into reality the most incredible of his desire, let conquer space and speed, the depth of the world ocean, sky high, towering mountains. And topped the list of achievements, of course, human space flight.

We are proud of the first astronaut in the history of the Earth. Our compatriot, whose name is known to everyone, Yuri Gagarin became the hero of the whole of humanity. A flight of a space module "Vostok-1" manned them - abroad, having people who have entered a new era - an era of recognition, exploration and conquest of the nearest celestial bodies (Moon, Mars, Venus) and deep sky.

This event shocked the world. 108 minutes of the first manned flight of the first human spacecraft in Earth orbit brought the understanding of how our fragile blue planet, how much strength and courage necessary for the person to overcome the Earth's gravity. All this became possible thanks to the unique capabilities, advanced technologies and selfless work of Soviet scientists, strength and courage of our testers.

Today the witnesses of momentous events are trying to perpetuate the memory of it in books, songs, movies, memorable signs, commemorative coins.
