with this words the russian cosmonaut was launched into space on april 12th now exactly 50 years ago.
Aboard the Vorstok 1 Yuri gagarin was the first human to journey into outer space and thus defeating the americans in the space race.
It is no secret that I'm fascinated with astronauts and space travel.
Events like this are really special... no, mythical is the right word.
I'll probably never get into space myself, but reading about other peoples journeys makes up for that a tiny bit.
