C325 First Man in Space - Gagarin
Issue Date: April 12, 2011
On April 12, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued three special stamps commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Yury Gagarin's
space flight, the world's first manned space flight. On April 12, 1961, the Soviet Union launched Vostok 1, the world's first manned spacecraft. Traveling over 25 times the speed of sound,
Cosmonaut Yury Gagarin made a complete orbit around the planet in 1 hour and 49 minutes. After re-entering the atmosphere, Gagarin parachuted to safety some four miles above Earth, bringing to a
close the most exciting round-the-world trip of the 20th century. Newspapers around the globe trumpeted his triumph, with headlines declaring "Soviet Man is a Space Columbus." A contemporary
report read: "Weeping with emotion, Premier Krushchev brought spaceman Yury Gagarin home to Moscow Friday and the city's millions hailed the astronaut as the space age Columbus in a roaring
welcome." With his successful orbit of the Earth, Gagarin ushered in the age of manned space flight.
