With over a year to go before the 50th anniversary of the beginning of human spaceflight on 12 April 2011 the Russian Federal Space Agency (aka Roscosmos) has already started a Yuri Gagarin 50th anniversary webpage to collect Gagarin memorabilia and then showcase it on the website. The first flight of a human being into space is celebrated every year around the world on 12 April under the banner of “Yuri’s night”, no doubt the celebrations will be bigger and better than ever on the 50th anniversary. The video above is in Russian and also shows Sergei Pavlovich Korolev, mastermind of the Soviet space programme
