This year we celebrate a 60-years Anniversary of the first ever spaceflight in the history of humanity.
On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin went to space from Baikonur launchsite, performed one orbit around the Earth and returned safely.
His legendary space flight lasted for 108 minutes only but these were the minutes to change the world and to prove that even impossible is nothing.
Greatest joint efforts, enthusiasm, devotion and bravery of the first heroes paved the way to space for the humanity.
For these 60 year that divide us from that great day a lot of discoveries have been made, Koryolyov’s dream about orbital stations has become true and many other important things have been achieved. But there is still more to do!
“The future of cosmonautics and its perspectives are unlimited as the Universe itself” – Sergey Korolyov used to say.
Today we would like to send you our sincere congratulations on the World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day! We congratulate all people who every day works in the aerospace branch, all professionals and just fans of space exploration! Wishing you space health, a great deal of inspiration and success in all good initiatives!
