Description

“First Man in Space”. An original black-and-white press photograph of the Russian cosmonaut, major Yuri Gagarin (1934–1968). Taken after his successful space voyage on April 12th 1961. Photo size 24.5×18 cm. Frame size 43×33 cm.

Apart from the fact that Yuri Gagarin was skilled and well-educated, he also had another quality, namely his very modest height. He measured only 1.57 metres and this made him fit into the narrow cabin of Vostok 1. He was killed during a MiG-15 flying exercise near Moscow in 1968.
