12 April – Cosmonautics Day





Cosmonautics Day (Day of Cosmos/Outer Space Exploration) is an anniversary celebrated in Russia and some other former USSR countries on 12 April. In 2011, 12 April was declared as the International Day of Human Space Flight in dedication of the first manned space flight made on 12 April 1961 by the 27-year-old Russian Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. It was sensational!
Yuri’s smile conquered the world.
