Happy Cosmonautics Day! Yura, Russia needs new Victories!

145



The Nativity of Christ, the fall of the Roman Empire, the discovery of America, the French Revolution, the atomic bomb over Hiroshima ... The enumeration can be continued, but equally great events in human stories there are only a few, and all of them, with their enormous content difference, are united by one meaning: each of these events radically changed the direction of human development, the very course of world history changed the world beyond recognition. Exactly 52 a year ago, another great event occurred that divided human history into BEFORE and AFTER. It was the first manned flight into space. This man was called by a simple Russian name - Yura.

Message TASS from 12 April 1961:
“12 April 1961 of the year in the Soviet Union was put into orbit around the Earth the world's first spacecraft-satellite" Vostok "with a man on board. Pilot-cosmonaut of the spacecraft-satellite "Vostok" is a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics pilot Major GAGARIN Yuri Alekseevich ... "


1961 ... Even 20 years ago, the earth, which nourished and sent man into the Cosmos, was ironed by enemy tracks tanks, underwent the most terrible in world history, the trials of war, famine and deprivation. 15 years ago, the salute of the Great Victory died out all over the world ... And again the glorious Victory! The victory of April 12, 1961, like the Great Victory of May forty-fifth, is the victory of the entire Russian people, multinational and diverse, talented and selfless, heroic and faithful to the age-old ideals of a common cause for the good of the common Fatherland. The victory of one person, a simple Smolensk guy Yury Gagarin, ready to put his life to the glory of Russia, following the example of the heroes of the past, who laid down their heads for their homeland, became the Victory of all our people, the memory of which will remain for centuries.

Happy Cosmonautics Day! Yura, Russia needs new Victories!

In this light, truly great day for our country, we believe that the Jura Gagarins, who are ready for feats not out of vanity, but at the call of the heart and at the behest of duty, out of great love for the Motherland and neighbor, live among us today, they sit for school desk in Ussuriysk, comprehend the "chitas and hardships" under Chita, gnaw the granite of science in St. Petersburg post-graduate school, dream of Great Russia, looking into an open European window somewhere near Kaliningrad and Lvov, near Brest, Riga, Tallinn; they dream of epaulets of a Russian officer, driving football in the midst of Central Asian dunes; they still dream of becoming astronauts, polar sailors, and design engineers. Simple Russian boys, Yury Gagarins of the 21 century ... Yura, Russia needs new Victories!

              - if it doesn’t, copy it to your computer;
              - if (or) a photo from a computer, click on "select from computer", find where it lies and click "open".

              if it doesn’t work, I recommend trying from a different address (computer), due to the update quite a lot of things do not want to work, for example, at my work several functions are stupidly engaged in sabotage am and when pressed - stupidly throws it into the "World of Tanks" belay , but at home everything works like a clock, except for downloading pictures-photos from a computer crying , admins promised to call Vintik and Shpuntik, so we sit and wait.

        Nothing. Break through. In any "fight" you can get on the face. However, one surrenders and raises the "paws" to the top. And the other will wipe the blood with a new rage will fight. Russia from the second category. Wipe out, tolerate and "fight". Gorbachov - Yeltsin is a temporary phenomenon. Russia is permanent. Let tactically we, and not the first time, lose. But strategically, we have stood and stood for 1000 years. Because we have the people of the Gagarin warehouse. And those units that in America do not do taxi drivers and dishwashers moonlighting the weather in the country. Let tryndyat.
        We have a homeland, it was and will be. Happy holiday!

        And believe me, we are still proud!
        NASA probe discovered on Mars a Soviet device that made a landing more than 40 years ago
        The images of the surface of Mars made by the American probe MRO (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) may have hit the Soviet Mars-3, which landed on the Red Planet in December 1971, according to Space.com. An object similar to this probe was first seen by Russian enthusiasts, and then NASA experts agreed with their hypothesis.

        I represent these Kaluga winters
        shaggy snow and winter ice
        kids on narrow skids,
        a poo bug at the gate
        and the porch and the house are quiet
        and he, on dilapidated paws, a table,
        where time melted like a crucible
        and space for rapprochement was going.

        Another airplane similar
        in those days the deaf was
        on pterodactyl without skin,
        on a bookcase with a pair of wings,
        and kaluzhanin is stupid,
        blowing light in the seven-ruler,
        through the ancient ceiling of Europe
        already flew into a family of planets,
        already forgetting the fate of resentment,
        under the witching tune of winter
        counted all night orbits,
        so that we do not wander in the sky.
        And hearing the rumbling rumble
        meteor rocket whistle,
        I see an unpretentious house,
        seven-sleepy light
        paper shade lampshade
        the whole house, the whole city
        where did the Russian genius begin
        your dazzling flight. (with)

      From the memoirs of his comrades and those people with whom he talked
      Yuri Gagarin, the first astronaut of the planet Earth, became a legend during his lifetime. The "Star Disease" did not concern him; he remained in the memory of his comrades in the first set of cosmonaut corps and all those with whom he worked, a simple, accessible, wonderful person. And his sunny smile has blinded everyone for more than half a century.

      No, not a relative of the Russian loud nobility
      With his princely surname,
      You were born in a simple peasant hut
      And maybe he didn’t hear about those princes.

      Surname - neither in honor of it, nor in honor,
      And with any ordinary fate:
      Grew up in a family, a breadbread man ran back,
      And there is time for his bread.

      And there he himself walked in breadwinners,
      And neither father nor mother wondered
      What are those princes in their namesakes
      At least they will be honored for their honor.

      What is the son of a native, mute zones scout,
      There, on the front edge of outer space,
      World fame, eternal championship
      He himself will head his youth.

    Time to return to the path of true greatness, to break away from the trough of momentary pleasures, and so that in our life there will be a FLIGHT OF GAGARIN - one for all, to tears!

      I remember a very long time ago my father brought me a small schoolboy to the Planetarium. Until now, the star dome and sunrise have remained in my memory. Since then, astronomy has become interesting, as a kid, he knew almost all the main constellations, until now I am well-guided by the stars if necessary, and there was such an object in school (now probably not) Then in the era of “happiness and a hundred varieties of sausage” a planetarium with “dusty” the paths of the planets "they closed for twenty years, they even wanted to sell, but thank God they finally reconstructed it and it works again ... Not yet, God forbid, when my grandchildren grow up I will certainly bring them together. The good news is that there are HUGE queues. in the sense of not waiting in line, but the fact that people are striving has not yet discouraged looking at the stars and dreaming of distant planets in the era of commercialism and cleanliness (by the way, without it, tickets are expensive for me for 3 tickets 1vzr = 2 children a colleague gave 2000 rubles.)
      Well, all involved and not very happy holiday! Cosmos is our common national heritage!

And in general, for all patriots who love their homeland, Happy Holidays !!!

          They did it cunningly by assigning not a total input price but for each separate "cluster"
          Big Star Hall - 500 rub.
          4D cinema - 300-500
          Interactive Museum "Lunarium" - 350
          Small Star Hall -350
          Exhibition Hall -250
          So consider if everything looks at what results. therefore, people choose one two species. despite a one-time discount of 20% on the entire package. Moreover, children under 6 years old, schoolchildren and pensioners 10% of the ticket price.

      people lack a unifying idea, the meaning of life and pride in the country, according to the comments this is felt ...... for starters, in my opinion, we must stop poisoning ourselves with alcohol and smoking, this is already becoming a national disaster ....... ...start a healthy lifestyle...... I was born and raised in Tajikistan, but people there were always happy about this holiday because they lived in the same country ......... a monument to the Unknown Soldier, with the names of hundreds of Tajiks who gave their lives for the common Victory, was in my native village of Nau, Leninabad region

      Yes, but they’ll probably try. For example, far not to go WWII, but rather the role of the USSR in the victory over fascism. But the main thing is that we know how everything was and we won’t fall for all kinds of historical ravings of the West.
      The main thing is that we could all be able to pass on to our teenagers all our values ​​and make sure that children had as heroes to imitate not some overseas movie heroes, but real heroes like Gagarin!

    The legendary man was Yuri Gagarin. Truly the first man to pave the way into space. A tragic and ridiculous death cut short the lives of millions and millions of people. He will forever remain in the memory of all the people of the world. The cosmonautics legend, I would call it, Y. Gagarin. Bright memory. This day it’s not customary to be sad, today is a holiday with Cosmonautics Day, friends !!! hi drinks

    About Gagarin
    When he returned to Earth,
    Having finished stellar affairs,
    So white-toothed smiled
    The smile was so warm.

    There is only kindness and strength in her -
    Not a drop of superiority.
    As if the grove radiated
    Birch, lake light.

    Kochetkov V.


    Thanks to everyone who dreamed of space, and his dream magnified our homeland

    You know. Not everyone remembers what happened in childhood. But on April 12, 1961 I remember (7 years). As I flew down the street and shouted "Grandmother! A man in space." Yes, it was a universal jubilation of all Soviet people. This event, by its significance, overshadowed everything. In my 7 years, I was proud that I was the same as Yuri Gagarin, a Soviet man — a citizen of the USSR — Russian. It was pride for their homeland, for our people. It was a feeling of personal involvement in these events, as if in his 7 years he seemed to help prepare the rocket for launch.

    It’s scary to remember how in one of our “Avanta” children's encyclopedias, in the category of greatest events, right after the first satellite, 1957 of the year, there was a landing of people (USA) on the moon - just like there was no Gagarin’s flight. You understand “they "they tried to" erase "GAGARIN, but what then is they doing up there? Enough to sit on the defensive, our propaganda should be an offensive and bright image of Gagarin and the greatness of what he did should never die in memory.
    And in this regard, I want to recall the words of astronaut Neil Armstrong (the first "sleepwalker") about Gagarin: "He called us into space"

    Question to our filmmakers: where is the movie about Yura? I read an interview with one Hollywood actor, so he was very surprised that we still haven’t shot a normal movie about a guy with an unbound cord. With whom to put an example to the younger generation - from vivid films and heroes. With spider-man, or people in black? You can with the "bastards" or at home-2. Or maybe from Gagarin?

    America may have been ahead of the Soviet Union in space exploration (landing on the moon, reusable ships, etc.), but the fact that the first person to open space was a citizen of the USSR will never take it away and never rewrite. It was a Great Victory, I remember that school always held drawing contests for Cosmonautics Day, everyone dreamed of being astronauts. Maybe, as some will now say, it was propaganda, but the propaganda is kind, it was pride in living in such a country.

    About the fact that the pilot is excellent and so clear, he’s also the right person. According to the memoirs of his contemporaries, he was not proud, was attentive and responsive. All official events got him in order, he wanted to sit not on the podium, but to fly. One of his words, I don’t know who I am , the first man to fly or the last dog in space means a lot

    As I remember, April 12, 1961 at 10 o’clock on the radio reported the flight of Yuri Gagarin. I was 15 years old, worked at the school site, planted apple trees. Joy and pride were immeasurable. This is our Soviet man the first in space. This joy was commensurate with the joy of May 9 Victory. I still feel it. It was pride for our Soviet power, for the Soviet people, and now I want to say: glory to our people, their engineers, technicians, workers. Glory to our military, our pilots and astronauts, Glory to Korolev and Gagarin. Damn everyone who destroyed the USSR, destroys Russia, capitalist ministers, treasury bureaucrats, power - their patrons, the elite that destroyed the Russian Soviet identity, turned the people into b-d-d-lo.

      Yes, no one, dear Boris, has forgotten about Sergei Pavlovich, just the style of the holiday since that time was set in such a way that YUR became the bridegroom of the universe who was married to the world that day, and we all learned about Sergey Pavlovich and the whole world only after his death, but it is impossible to overestimate the merits of these two people before the country, and I hope this will never happen as long as at least one person lives on the earth or not on the earth.

    Happy Cosmonautics Day. And smile more often. A holiday is almost international)))

    <<My name is Bakare Tunde, I am the brother of the first Nigerian astronaut, Nigerian Air Force Major Abaka Tunde. My brother became the first African astronaut to go on a secret mission to the Soviet station back in 1979. He later took part in a Soviet flight to a secret Soviet space station.

    In 1990, when the USSR fell, he was just at the station. All Russian team members managed to return to the ground, but my brother did not have enough space in the ship. From then until today, he is forced to be in orbit, and only rare cargo ships provide him with the necessary.

    Despite everything, my brother does not lose his presence of spirit, but he longs to return home, to his native Nigeria.

    Over the many years that he spent in space, his gradually accumulating wages amounted to 15.000.000 US dollars. Currently, this amount is stored in a bank in Lagos. If we manage to gain access to money, we will be able to pay the required amount to Roscosmos and arrange a flight to Earth for my brother.

    The amount requested by Roscosmos is 3.000.000 US dollars. However, to receive the amount, we need your help, since we, the Nigerian civil servants, are prohibited from all operations with foreign accounts. Forever yours, Dr. Bakare Tunde, leading specialist in astronautics.
