Yuri Gagarin Celebrated

Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin—honored today with a Google Doodle—waves from a car outside the Russian Embassy in London in July 1961, a few months after he became the first human to fly in space. Today marks the 50th anniversary of Gagarin's historic first orbit around Earth aboard the Vostok 1 spacecraft.


Gagarin Suited for the Job

Gagarin's Ride

Vostok 1, the spacecraft used by Yuri Gagarin during his first orbit of Earth, hangs on display in an undated photograph.


Dancing for Gagarin

Celebrants link arms and dance in Moscow's Red Square in honor of Yuri Gagarin's successful spaceflight in this 1961 photograph. Two days after he landed, Gagarin was escorted to Red Square in a parade and given the Hero Award of the Soviet Union.


Immortal Gagarin

April 12,2011 was Yuri's 50th anniversary since his space flight.

Kung hindi lang bumagsak ang Soviet Union mas advance sana ngayon ang space exploration. Sila kasi ang mas masigasig compare to america. Baka nakakapagpadala na ngayon ng Human sa Mars at ibang planets.

This man is a son of carpenter/farmer.

This man is a God for me.
