The first space flight in human history

61 years ago, Yuri Gagarin made the first flight into space in the history of mankind.

On April 12, 1961, on the Vostok-1 spacecraft, he circled the planet Earth. The flight in near-Earth space continued for 108 minutes. At the start, Gagarin said the phrase “Let’s go!”, Which became a hallmark.

Since 1962, Cosmonautics Day has been celebrated in the USSR, and in 2011, at the UN General Assembly, it was decided to annually celebrate April 12 as the International Day of Human Space Flight.

We invite you to take a post factum Cosmo Quizz on the page of the Moscow Museum of Cosmonautics and test your astro-cosmic knowledge.
