Happy Cosmonautics Day! (video)

Dear Friends!

Today our country and the whole world are celebrating a special jubilee Day of Cosmonautics!

Exactly 60 years ago, on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin entered world history forever as the first cosmonaut of the planet, having flown on the Vostok spacecraft!

Its flight lasted 1 hour 48 minutes – this time was enough to understand that there is a place for man in space, and our country proved this by winning the space race!

We are proud of this Day and this victory to this day! Seeing how spacecraft rush into the sky, every time we remember the first in space and say “thank you” to him for not being afraid, passing all the tests and becoming the best, becoming the first!

I sincerely congratulate you on the holiday that embodies the greatest achievement of the scientific progress of our country – the victory of mankind over gravity!

I wish you peace, kindness, warmth, health, happiness, family well-being, the realization of everything conceived, and of course, new discoveries, achievements and victories!

Believe in yourself and you will succeed!
