86 years ago, on March 9, 1934, in the village of Klushino, Gzhatsky (now Gagarin) district of the Smolensk region, the first cosmonaut of the planet Yuri Gagarin was born – a special person not only for those who connected their lives with space, but also for all people in the world.

108 minutes, spent by Yuri Gagarin, in near-Earth orbit on April 12, 1961, opened a new era for humanity.

Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was remembered by many for his wide charming smile!
