MAN IN SPACE

1 Posted by - 12.04.2014 - Event

April, 1961. With unusual envy the magazine notes that Russians remain the first in space. People crowds gather at loudspeakers, transport stopped. The place of start isn’t known, messages on flight are incredibly avaricious, but when the Moscow’s radio reported at 12.25 that Gagarin successfully landed at 10.55, triumph captured the country. Such this pleasure wasn’t and at start of the first satellite! All imaginable records of height and speed are broken, but these are trifles in comparison with the main thing: the centuries-old dream of mankind became reality!
