This Sunday is the International Day of Human Space Flight. 12 April 1961 was the date of the first human space flight, carried out by Yuri Gagarin, a Soviet citizen. This historic event opened the way for space exploration for the benefit of all humanity.

The General Assembly, in its resolution of 7 April 2011, declared 12 April as the International Day of Human Space Flight “to celebrate each year at the international level the beginning of the space era for mankind, reaffirming the important contribution of space science and technology in achieving sustainable development goals and increasing the well-being of States and peoples, as well as ensuring the realization of their aspiration to maintain outer space for peaceful purposes.”

Now my space knowledge doesn’t stretch much further than Buzz Lightyear, but if you want to read a bit more about the Yuri click here to visit the BBC’s biography page.

Alternatively, if your mental age is similar to mine see Buzz in action here!
