Space Travel Since 1961
1961 – First Man in Space (Yuri Gagarin with the Vostok 1 Rocket)
On 12 April 1961, Gagarin became the first man to travel into space, launching to orbit aboard the Vostok 3KA-3 (Vostok 1). Gagarin orbited the Earth once in 108 minutes. He returned unharmed, ejecting from the Vostok capsule 7 km (23,000 ft) above the ground and parachuting separately to the ground since the capsule’s parachute landing was deemed too rough for cosmonauts to risk.
