Video footage of Yuri Gagarin's historic spaceflight

It's the 50th anniversary of human spaceflight. And what's an anniversary if not an occasion for awesome archival video footage set to a cheesy modern soundtrack? Happy Yuri's Night!

  1. Yay, Yuri’s day! What awesome footage! What an amazing event! That totally makes up for the fact that it is also the anniversary of the start of the US civil war and of FDR’s passing.

  2. I really hate those movies with a soundtrack on them. Why not leave the original sound on them? Or give some extra oral information. Everything but this.

  3. 16 years after World War 2 that killed 27 million Russian and destroyed 2 / 3 industry in the USSR

  4. Link to more suitable music. Antarctica Suite by V Williams. Just open in another tab. Play the two together.

  5. Old information. There is a new video from scratch recreating the Gagarin´s trip. It was released yesterday on Youtube, recorded in Space Station. Search for “First Orbit”.
