50 Years of Yuri!

As you may know! or for those of you who don't google have a lovely doodle today commemorating the 50 year aniversary of the flight of Yuri Gagarin, if you don't know who this man is check out our Previous post Link about the tragic story of Yuri Gagarin's friend Vladamir Komarov, and the heroic tale of Yuri Gagarin himself. The first man into space to return successfully!
So I ask you to say the heroic chant of lift off with me "Poyekhali" or in english "Here we go"

And let us not forget his famous words from space
"I see no god up here"


  1. Is Komarov the guy who knew that whoever went up wouldn't survive, so he went instead of Yuri to save his friend's life?


Let us know what you think!
