Mankind always dreamed of overcoming gravitation.
But it was only in the 1961 that this dream was to become reality.
On the 12th of April the spaceship «Vostok-1» was launched into space with Yuri Gagarin on board and after orbiting our planet successfully returned to the Earth.
It was 108 minutes that changed the world!
