As a Russian scientist scared the whole of Europe

12 April 1961, the first attempt of mankind to conquer space. Whether prospects for conquering the expanses of the universe depended on whether Yuri Gagarin would return from orbit, or whether it would remain a utopia for many years.


Three days after returning to earth, the first cosmonaut gives a press conference. Answering the question of whether the true flight conditions differed from those he imagined, Gagarin replied: “The factors of space flight are very well described in Tsiolkovsky’s book. I’m just amazed how our wonderful scientist could foresee everything that I had a chance to meet, that I had to experience myself. "

Very many assumptions of Konstantin Tsiokovsky turned out to be absolutely correct.

Konstantin Tsiolkovsky Eduardovich - the legendary founder of theoretical cosmonautics. He was the first in the world to propose using artificial satellites, rockets and orbital stations long before they could be built.

    In the native village of M.E. Tsiolkovsky Izhevsk, Ryazan region, and today the road leaves much to be desired. Do not want to, thoughts about the moon and space in the head will be asked.
