April,12th — World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day
On April 12 we celebrate World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day. 56 years ago on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin performed first spaceflight proving that there is nothing impossible. From the times of Leonardo Da Vinci humankind has dreamt of conquering skies and space; this flight lasting for just 108 minutes became a great breakthrough, a triumph of S. Korolyov scientific genius and opened up new horizons and opportunities for humanity.
On this day we congratulate not only those dealing with aerospace industry directly but either usual aviation and cosmonautics fans.
According to our tradition we wish you successful launches, soft landings and space health! Never stop conquering new heights!
