Caption: Funeral of Gagarin and Seryogin. Funeral procession in Moscow's Red Square for Soviet heroes Gagarin (left) and Seryogin (right). Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin (1934-1968) had become the first human in space, orbiting the Earth in the Vostok 1 spacecraft on 12 April 1961. Following this historic spaceflight, Gagarin became a hero in the Soviet Union and famous worldwide. He died on 27 March 1968 with Soviet test pilot Vladimir Seryogin (1922-1968) when an aeroplane they were flying crashed. Their remains were cremated and the ashes were placed in the Kremlin Wall with full military honours. Photographed in Moscow, Russia, on 30 March 1968.
