On April 12th, 1961 Yuri Gagarin launched aboard Vostok 1 and completed a 108 minute orbital flight around the earth, becoming the first human to reach space. The impact of this incredible feat was just begging to happen for Yuri, Russia, the US, and the whole planet. Come learn about this fascinating period in world history and the legacy left behind by Yuri's first flight.
