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 🚀
