The first man in space #Gagarin85

April 2019 – Russian American History Month

April, 2019


On March 9, legendary Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, would have turned 85. His 108-minute epic orbital flight on April 12, 1961 ushered in the era of space exploration 🚀

Roscosmos is announcing the start of #Gagarin85 initiative! There are lots of places around the world with connections to the first cosmonaut.

All that you need to do is publish the photo with #Gagarin85 hashtag on social media. The collage with all the photos will fly to the ISS 🚀
