50 years has passed since Yuri Gagarin completed an orbit of the Earth in his tiny Vostok 3KA-3 spacecraft. I don't know about Americans and Europeans, but in the post-soviet union this is something of big deal. НАРРУ ДЕНЬ КОСМОНАВТИКИ, ТОВАРИЩИ!

If you really think that was a serious statement, you're about as dumb as you seem to think I am.

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

"We will never be an advanced civilization as long as rain showers can delay the launching of a space rocket." - George Carlin

An hour ago, some friends and I launched fireworks to mark the occasion. The rain was pouring so hard that one of the smaller rockets lost some propellant and blew up after a couple of meters.
The rest flew.


There should have been more talk about this. It was the single most glorious moment in human history.

A very celebratory occasion, I am very interested in history, especially the development of space flight and travel. Ashamed to say as I am an American, most American probably don't have a flying **** of clue of Yuri Gagarin is, they probably think one of two things. Neil Armstrong was the first man in space AND the moon, and he was also the first american in Space.

America sadly has little clue of Yuri Gagarin, or Alan Sheperd and he is American.

And just to be a nerd, who knows how Valentina Tereshkova is relevant to this?

Actually, I have a theory on his death, Yuri Gagarin inspected Soyuz 1 before it was going to be launched, he and his inspection team found over 200 structural faults, he sent a memo to Soviet Command trying to get them to delay the launch to fix the problems, but they didn't and his close friend, Vladimir Komarov died in Soyuz 1's re-entry into Earth after it aborted the moon landing.

Yuri Gagarin may have tried protesting Soviet Command's decision to go on with the launch, which was why he was killed when he was flying a MiG-15, an Su-15 which may have been piloted by a KGB agent broke the sound barrier right next to Yuri's plane, throwing his plane out of control, causing him to crash and die.
