Cosmonautics Day

The 12th of April marks the 56th anniversary of manned spaceflights, humankind's’ first foray into space, a day that not only was the beginning of another chapter in exploration, but a moment that moved humanity from the realms of science fiction, into the unexplored worlds of science fact. It will be a record that can never be beaten, a young Soviet cosmonaut named Yuri Gagarin shook off the chains of Earth and ventured into space for a 108 minute flight on that day in his Vostok 1 spacecraft. A triumph for all mankind!
