Caption: Yuri Gagarin statue. Statue of the Russian-Soviet cosmonaut and first man in space Yuri Gagarin, outside the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, London, UK. 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. This statue was installed in 2013 in a courtyard now named Gagarin Terrace.
