Google New Logo: Yuri Gagarin - Russian Astronaut

    Google New Logo: Yuri Gagarin - Russian Astronaut
    Abstract: I just found that Google launch a new logo which named an Russian Astronaut: Yuri Gagarin. April 12 2007 is the 46th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space.

    Author: Horisly's Space

    Yuri Gagarin was born near Moscow, Russia on March 9, 1934. He died on March 27, 1968. Yuri joined the Soviet Air Force in 1955. By 1959, he was training to become a cosmonaut.

    On April 12, 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first human to orbit Earth! The name of his spacecraft was Vostok 1. Vostok 1 had two sections. One section was for Yuri. The second section was for supplies needed for Gagarin to live such as oxygen and water.


    Vostok 1 circled Earth at a speed of 27,400 kilometers per hour. The flight lasted 108 minutes.
    Vostok's reentry was controlled by a computer. Yuri Gagarin did not land inside of Vostok 1. He ejected from the spacecraft and landed by parachute.

    Yuri Gagarin was killed in a plane crash before he could travel in space a second time.


    Detail Profile of Yuri Gagarin:

    Colonel Yuri A. Gagarin was born on a collective farm in a region west of Moscow, Russia on March 9, 1934. His father was a carpenter. Yuri attended the local school for six years and continued his education at vocational and technical schools.

    Yuri Gagarin joined the Russian Air Force in 1955 and graduated with honors from the Soviet Air Force Academy in 1957. Soon afterward, he became a military fighter pilot. By 1959, he had been selected for cosmonaut training as part of the first group of USSR cosmonauts.

    Yuri Gagarin flew only one space mission. On April 12, 1961 he became the first human to orbit Earth. Gagarin's spacecraft, Vostok 1, circled Earth at a speed of 27,400 kilometers per hour. The flight lasted 108 minutes. At the highest point, Gagarin was about 327 kilometers above Earth.

    Once in orbit, Yuri Gagarin had no control over his spacecraft. Vostok's reentry was controlled by a computer program sending radio commands to the space capsule. Although the controls were locked, a key had been placed in a sealed envelope in case an emergency situation made it necessary for Gagarin to take control. As was planned, Cosmonaut Gagarin ejected after reentry into Earth's atmosphere and landed by parachute.

    Colonel Yuri Gagarin died on March 27, 1968 when the MiG-15 he was piloting crashed near Moscow. At the time of his death, Yuri Gagarin was in training for a second space mission.

    I think today is a big event in Russia - a public holiday or similar. That would explain the interest.

    It is not a golf ball :) It is a Vostok 1 reentry capsule that Gagarin flew in.

    Even though this holiday is widely celebrated in Russia, the real point is that April 12th is the day human exploration of space started.

    It is not just a Russian holiday, it is humanity's achievement holiday and thus regarded world-wide.
