VERY RARE KIT - DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS KIT
On April 12 in 1961 at 7:07am CET, Juri Gagarin was the first human being to fly into space with the “Vostok-1”, where he orbited the earth within 108 minutes. This event represented a high success for all Eastern bloc countries which were in constant competition with the United States of America. Gagarin started in the Soviet place of Kosmodrom Baikonur, the biggest Soviet space mission launch center in southern Kasachstan.
There were five more Vostok missions in which were used to examine human habitation in space. The first female cosmonaut, Valentina Tereschkova, was part of the sixth and last mission which was carried out in 1963.
