In Memory of Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin — 50th Anniversary of human space flight.

Yuri Gargarin, first man in space and first to orbit the earth.


I hope you will celebrate April 12th, the anniversary of the first man in space and first person to orbit the earth: In Memory of Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин). He was a heroic figure and a personal hero of mine. Read about him on this wiki page and raise a toast on Monday.

A memorial plaque and act of friendship.
