April 12, 1961, Yury Gagarin was the first man in space…

Today is April 12th, 2013 and on this day on April 12, 1961: Yury Gagarin was the first man in space! I have to tell you that since I have been living in Russia, this is a day that the Russian people know about and love. This day is proudly thought off and all the kids are even taught about this day. The truth is that this is an important day and most likely the turning point for forcing America to go to the moon…

Russia had the first man in space and set the ground work for all to come. Even though America got to the moon, the fact that a man orbited earth and was in space is the key to the whole picture…

April 12, 1961, Yury Gagarin was the first man in space, watch the video…

The woman said: “Can it be that you have come from outer space? Yuri Gagarin said: As a matter of fact, I have!  The Soviet Union has become the seacoast of the universe!”  — by Sergei Korolev…

yuri“I saw for the first time the earth’s shape. I could easily see the shores of continents, islands, great rivers, folds of the terrain, large bodies of water. The horizon is dark blue, smoothly turning to black. . . the feelings which filled me I can express with one word—joy!” by Yuri A. Gagarin…

So exactly 52 years ago man entered space for the first time. Seems sad that we war amongst ourselves instead of exploring space! Exploring space would be better than war…
