This year is a year of remarkable space anniversaries.

And the main one is 85 years since the birth of the first cosmonaut of the Earth, Yuri Gagarin, celebrated in March.

Having completed the flight, the descent module with Yuri Gagarin landed in the Saratov region.

From that region on the Volga river, the first female cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova brought as a gift to GCTC the tree seedlings.

And on April 18 Valentina Tereshkova with a cosmonauts, the management and staff of the Center, planted this tree seedlings on the alley near the monument, where the ceremonial farewell of the crews usually take place.

Valentina Tereshkova suggested to make traditional planting of trees not only at Baikonur, but also at the GCTC.

This will be not only as a honor to the name of Yuri Gagarin, but will also bring real benefits to the nature of Star City.

At the end of the event, Valentina Tereshkova, First Deputy Head of the Cosmonaut Training Center Yuri Malenchenko, and the head of the Star City Eugeny Barishevsky, left autographs on a shovel, which was used for the planting.

This instrument was donated to the GCTC Museum as a symbol of birth of a new good tradition.
