Caption: Soviet Vostok spacecraft. This spacecraft carried Yuri Gagarin on the first manned spaceflight. It consists of a spherical descent module (upper left), that carries the cosmonaut through re-entry, on top of a conical instrument module. As well as manned flight, it could also be used as a platform for a camera, so that it could double as a spy satellite.
