Soviet Space History

12 April 1961 is another of those important dates humans shouldn’t forget.  It was the day a human first entered space, if only for 108 minutes.  That human was a Soviet Cosmonaut named Yuri Gagarin.  The Daily Kos posted this article yesterday, giving some information on the Space Race between the US and USSR, and some tidbits on Gagarin’s flight into outer space and back.

There are some interesting details about the Soviet space program in the article that come out, so it might be worth your time to give it a read.
