Fly along with Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space

Very few people have had the privilege of seeing the Earth from vantage point of Space. And no one can claim to have been the first other than Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, who strapped himself onto a rocket and a by no means certain date with destiny.

We can all fly along his flight path today, fifty years later, in this film made to commemorate the occasion. Shot from the International Space Station on a trajectory and altitude that emulates what he went through, overlaid with the sound of his transmissions to Russian Space Command, you can almost feel like you were there.

Enjoy and be awed by the awesomeness.
