Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin - First human in space- and film about it

Yuri Gagarin's flight over the Earth will have its anniversary on April 13th.... There will be a film about it to show all the details, the problems and the happy end. You can get more information on the page: where you'll find:

"On 12th April 2011 it will be 50 years to the day since Yuri Gagarin climbed into his space ship and was launched into space. It took him just 108 minutes to orbit Earth and he returned as the World's very first space man.
To mark this historic flight we have teamed up with the astronauts onboard the International Space Station to film a new view of what Yuri would have seen as he travelled around the planet.
Weaving these new views together with historic voice recordings from Yuri's flight and an original score by composer Philip Sheppard, we have created a spellbinding film to share with people around the World on this historic anniversary.
We have partnered with YouTube to host a special global premiere of the film on the 12th April."

  1. It makes me feel an old person. I remember perfectly the fact. I was so young...and every thing about space was so exiting!

  2. We as humans always need a last fronteer to conquer. In the Rennaisance we needed to know what was beyond the seas, and thus we discovered America. Then, the peoples in North America needed to know what was beyond the Rocky Mountains, and so they discovered the West coast of the continent. Now, all geography in our world is known. We now need to look to the stars above us and seek for our last and deffinitive fronteer: outer space. We are still trying to answer too many questions. That is our main objective in life. Reality becomes Philosophy. It will always be exciting. The only problem is that it is a very slow progress.
