60 Years of Human Space Exploration
On April 12, 1961, a man flew into space. The first Earthling to go into orbit was 27-year-old Yuri Gagarin. Sixty years ago, Yuri Alekseevich triumphantly opened a new era — the era of human astronautics.
Today, humanity has firmly mastered Earth's orbit, created the largest space station and is preparing to conquer the planets. Domestic cosmonautics grew up on the Vostok ships, got stronger on the Soyuz ships, and the Orel ships will help master the road to deep space.
