March 9, 2014 marks the 80th anniversary of the First Spaceman of our Planet – Yuri Gagarin.

Gagarin is the subject of many writings, an extensive section of the RSC Energia web site is dedicated to Yuri Gagarin and the first flight of man in space.

We are offering a material which outlines key events in Y. Gagarin’s life and gives an idea of the first manned spacecraft Vostok.

This material is primarily intended for schoolchildren, but we hope that it might be of interest to all those who would like to remember the beginnings of the Space Age, to steep themselves in the atmosphere of those distant times (links to the favorite Soviet songs of those days are provided).
