Caption: Yuri Gagarin (1934-1968). Gagarin made the first manned space flight on 12th April 1961. He orbited the Earth once in the Vostok 1 spacecraft, a flight that lasted 1 hour and 48 minutes. Gagarin became a hero in the Soviet Union and famous worldwide. He later returned to active service as a test pilot, dying in a crash during a training flight in 1968. Here he is looking at the 'Airwoman' statue in Lipki, Russia, while at technical college.
