The cosmic triumph of 1961. What would prevent Yuri Gagarin from smiling widely today?

165
April 12, Russia celebrates one of those holidays, which is a reminder of the outstanding technological successes of mankind. This, of course, is about a holiday called the World Day aviation and astronautics. On April 12, the holiday is truly international, and outside the Russian Federation its official name is as follows: International Day of Human Space Flight.


If in the Soviet Union the date of the Aviation and Cosmonautics Day was officially approved about a year after Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin’s flight, namely 9 April 1962, then foreign countries needed half a century to decide on adding April 12 to the international calendar of holidays. In this case, the initiator was the Russian Federation itself.

7 April 2011, at the plenary session of the United Nations General Assembly on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first manned space flight, resolution No. A / RES / 65 / 271 was adopted. More than 60 states participated in the development of this resolution.

From the statement by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on 7 on April 2011:
I am sure that the celebration of the International Day of Manned Space Flight will remind us of the common humanity and the need to work together to successfully solve our common problems. I hope that it will also serve as a special incentive for young people to fulfill their dreams and expand the boundaries of knowledge and understanding in the world.


The cosmic triumph of 1961. What would prevent Yuri Gagarin from smiling widely today?


I don’t want to talk about sad things on such a day, but at that moment, when the UN Secretary-General was thinking about the community of humanity, the third week of the NATO bombings of Libya was going on ... This proved once more that a number of states understand the community as “the community of humanity” allows these states to focus on their own interests and goals, even if these goals have nothing to do with the world on Earth.

If we talk about the United Nations, today - 12 on April 2016, a complex of events will be held at UN Headquarters to celebrate the 55 anniversary of the first manned space flight.

What did April 12, 1961 mean for the USSR, and what does this date mean for modern Russia? For the Soviet Union, the first manned flight into space was not just an event with a plus sign. It was an episode of the transformation of society, a new more than substantial impulse for development - after the impulse received on May 9, 1945. April 12, 1961 is the birthday of a unique understanding of technological superiority and the birthday of added self-confidence. And this day has a symbol - a man whose smile is known without exaggeration to billions of representatives of modern civilization around the world: from the heart of Russia to the most remote corners of other countries and continents. The name of Yuri Gagarin for millions of foreign citizens is often associated with the main historical in the name of Russia, which was repeatedly demonstrated by various opinion polls.

April 12 for Russia today is not only a reason to celebrate YNU Gagarin’s 55 anniversary of space flight as a technological breakthrough, but also a reason to think about the value system. And this system for 55 years, passing from the date of the April triumph of 1961, has undergone, to put it mildly, certain changes. So it happened, but today a few representatives of Russians of “tender age” say that their dream in the future is to become astronauts and conquer the expanses of the Universe or become developers of the newest spaceships. Unfortunately, the times of “cosmic” romanticism have remained largely behind, and today the majority of children say far from “cosmic” dreams in terms of choosing their future profession. Despite all the statements that we’re legal and economic specialists with two or three diplomas, we are a dime a dozen, young men and women still believe that it is easier and more useful to strive to obtain only economic or legal education in modern conditions. Like, the space we will see in 3D-cinema.

In general, it is difficult to talk about the popularization of the cosmic direction of domestic science, if children from school are reminded of the existence of Cosmonautics Day no more than once a year. And it’s good that they generally remind, because at one time, officials of the Ministry of Education and Science (education and science! ..) decided to exclude such an object as “Astronomy” from the school curriculum. It is interesting to know the name of the person to whom such an idea even occurred to him, and how was the course of its implementation motivated? One gets the impression that education officials decided to implement a program according to which our children do not need knowledge of the USSR’s technological triumph in 1961 ... But this is actually another attempt to deliver a crushing blow to the heroic history of the country and its people, another attempt to cultivate Ivanov, not remembering neither kinship, nor the bright pages of the history of the state in which they were born.

Last year, the cosmonauts themselves, who today cannot imagine what their professional fates would have been, sounded the alarm about this if astronomical science had acted in schools in their time just as they had done several years ago. Russian cosmonauts have collectively advocated the return of this academic discipline to the school curriculum. During the press conference dedicated to the 46 / 47 flight of the expedition to the ISS (April 2015), space pilot Yuri Malenchenko said important words:

Of course, you need to enter such a subject. Children are interested in space issues, they are interested in how our solar system works. Based on our work on the ISS, we have planned a number of events with the aim of attracting the interest of young people to space so that in the future they will link their lives with astronomy and related disciplines.


The cosmonauts on their own prepared a series of popular science films about the characteristics of life on the International Space Station, created several video tutorials on the implementation of various physical laws on board the spacecraft under weightless conditions. Modern enthusiastic teachers willingly demonstrate this material to their students, who in fact “secretly” from the Ministry of Education and its educational standards try to sow among the young generation both reasonable, eternal, and good. And only thanks to such enthusiasts, for whom education is not only and so much of the Unified State Exam, most modern schoolchildren can still name the first person in space, and that this person is our compatriot, not an American superhero ... Low bow and cosmonauts and enthusiastic educators! Thanks to your work, our society does not slide into the final consumer corps de ballet.

The Kremlin press service reports that today, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and the head of the Federal Space Agency, Igor Komarov, will report to the president on the development of Russian space exploration. I would like to hope that this report will also touch upon the question of the real popularization of science related to the exploration of outer space in modern school. After all, if a person from childhood does not have the opportunity to receive information about what generally prompted the appearance of the Cosmonautics Calendar, it is somewhat strange to expect him to work in the future to develop this industry, which is strategic for Russia and for its technological competitiveness level.

The famous Gagarin "Let's go!" in this regard, today may come in handy!

          There is a small question, why did the first astronauts not suffer from weightlessness and were peppy, and the next carried out on a stretcher and saved from heart attacks?

            Yeah ... In your opinion, the first cosmonauts were people with iron health (or maybe they did not fly further than the shooting pavilion) The answer is obvious - the duration of the first flights. Yes, and of course they suffered from weightlessness, it just could not be shown.

              There is a small question ...


              They write something like this and say: "Isn't the price of Victory and Gagarin's flight too high?"

              “In many disputes on historical topics, the following thing confuses me. For example, a person says:“ Do you know what price we paid for this Victory ?! Boggles the mind! "

              Или:
              "We flew into space, yeah, while the whole country was eating horseradish and salt. Why did he surrender to us, space at such a price? Switzerland did not fly anywhere, but God forbid everyone lives."

              It looks as if there is a certain historical store, where too expensive - not affordable - a thing can be returned and returned. "All the people here consulted and decided that the Victory was not within our capabilities, excuse me. Here it is, almost never used, here is the check." Well, at the checkout, twenty-seven million lives will be counted back to you, along with their unborn children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

              I gave it to Gagarin’s window, issued a return, and right around Switzerland, from the windows of the apartment (150 square meters) you can see the lake, mountains and a piece of Khodorkovsky’s villa.

              Whatever the price, it has already been paid. But they are trying to convince us that we must abandon this or that historical achievement only because the price was too high.

              Well, if for one reason or another you have overpaid for your apartment, welcome to the heating main. Well, her, this expensive hut, for which I had to give so much. The logic is the same. "

              Here is such a comment and a worthy answer to the attacks of various "undergrowths".

              These two events, these two dates are very important for us.
              THIS IS OUR STORY. AND NOBODY WILL TAKE IT OUT OF US EVER !!!


              And before the first flight, those who were preparing at the training ground did not even notice that the steppe bloomed before the usual low stunted tulips. And this steppe beauty forever remained in the memory of Gagarin and Titov.

                  It is enviable so far that Russian is the first in space. You still think, except for Gorbi, EBN, Chubais and so on. for the sake of this shame that you raised in the damned time, we have no one. And we have Gagarin. Korolev, Kurchatov and a great many other patriots and heroes of our country. As for the rake, you are stepping on the whole story, the last Adolf was.

              In particular, they carried Sevastyanov and Nikolaev. After a two-week flight, they could not independently get out of the descent vehicle. Sevastyanov, removing his helmet from his head, dropped it from his hands. He did not have enough strength to hold him because of muscle atrophy. Heart decreased in volume by 20%. Nikolaev had a heart attack. Later, he had, one after another, two more heart attacks.

                The first starts lasted hours. Then the days. And quite unexpectedly it turned out that if a person spends more than a week in zero gravity, then the body is weaned from stress. Muscles atrophied very quickly. This problem has led to the creation of a whole branch of medicine, namely space medicine. Empirically, various simulators and tools have been developed to maintain normal fitness. As a result, records for the duration of a person’s stay in space have always belonged to Soviet cosmonauts. In this we overtook everyone for a very long time. Space medicine is purely Soviet know-how. Yes, what can I say, even today's ISS without this branch of medicine, in principle, would have been impossible.

              Unfortunately it's true. "Nothing destroys the body like prolonged physical inactivity." that's what Aristotle said. Future cosmonauts were trained for extra human stress. But the most dire consequences were due to the lack of loads. Bones became brittle, muscles became weak, ...... Therefore, simulators are now required on space stations. A good example is wheelchair disabled people, strong arms and legs - skin and bones, muscles atrophy without stress.

      And if you realize that after the destructive war only 17 years have passed, then in general you are amazed how it all happened !!! They overtook America, where there was no massacre and devastation, where hundreds of talented, and sometimes brilliant scientists and engineers from all over the world flocked, where money circulated all over the world ...!

      A deep bow to that generation of Soviet people!

          Everything is relative what to take as a basis. If the current government does not spare billions on the construction of the Yeltsin Mausoleum. then we all rolled like cheese in butter.
          But it’s not that the Soviet country was moving forward. Until the traitors came to power and began to talk about how we find ourselves living poorly then. And now, if so good, then why convert the explosives. to the National Guard, while increasing the staff by almost half?

He says that cosmonautics is in w * ne, but it's Obama's fault, we can't build a road between Moscow and St. Petersburg - Navalny is to blame, we're driving the grandmas instead of our economy to the United States - Yaytsenyuk is to blame))) What should I convince you, that you lack logical thinking? And I am not saying that Navalny can, what is not, I say that his investigations show those who, according to you, "can not only scratch their tongues."

      This incredible triumph happened less than some 16 years after the Great Victory, which was so hard on it. Just think, part of the country was in ruins, a huge number of dead, wounded, and after all this, not the Americans, who received huge amounts of money in the war, but our Soviet man was the first to make this space flight. From the point of view of all the "economics" imposed on us, this could not happen in principle, but it happened. And in this there is some kind of higher, maybe even divine justice!

      Received information:
      The design of the heavy-class launch vehicle Angara A5V was reviewed and approved by Roskosmos. She must send a spaceship into the orbit of the moon. In the near future, the missile project will be submitted for approval to Russian President Vladimir Putin. This is reported by the newspaper "Izvestia" with reference to the corporation.

      “The Roscosmos Scientific and Technical Council reviewed and supported the project to create the Angara A5V launch vehicle. In the near future, the project will be submitted to the President of Russia for approval,” the Roskosmos press service said in a statement.

      The goal of creating the Angara A5V launch vehicle is to deliver astronauts to the Earth’s satellite. This should happen in the early 2030s. Prior to this, it is necessary to conduct many tests, as well as four starts.

      During the first launch, the rocket starts with the lunar landing module and its interorbital tug. During the second - another tug will be put into orbit for docking with the lunar module.

      The third launch will put into orbit a spaceship with a crew. The latter will send an interorbital tug for docking with a manned transport ship.

      It is noted that the first test flight of the Angara A5V will take place in 2026.

    The astronauts on their own prepared a series of popular science films about the features of life on the International Space Station, created several video tutorials on the implementation of certain physical laws on board a spaceship in zero gravity.

    I think it’s time not only for astronauts to create films and video tutorials, but also for our filmmakers to make films about our achievements and the exploits of astronauts in space, we have practically no modern films about our achievements in science and space, we only watch American films Apolon 13 and so on. , where the Russians are shown not from the best side, they say so passed by. For that about the exploits of the cops, bandits, and about the fact that the Rich cry the same, a dime a dozen. They would make at least one film about the life of workers at the factory, how they work, love, and how they are paid by the rich who cry.
    And so far we have everything as in this Jumble. Neither give nor take. As today.
    In fact, the state is the customer both in the cinema and in the education system, so what happens? I don’t understand. Probably we need stupid and uneducated bun-eaters with cutlets, like in the USA, which are easy to manage in the future?

It was necessary to close it a long time ago, and besides her there was also "Comedy Woman", "Comedy Club, which have descended to" everyday life "and obscenity." Let's get married "is a program of a completely different kind. It is useful and necessary. The stronger the families, the stronger the state and the more united the Society.

    Cosmonautics has become commonplace. People regularly fly, live in near space, work. And breakthrough projects, from which the youth’s eyes light up, are absent. American spacecraft roam Mars, explore distant planets. And we turned into space taxi drivers, which we are proud of. It remains only to nostalgic for those times when people could dream and make their dreams come true. Now, alas, profit comes first.

Well, plus to everything, it’s the weight, the designer is fighting for every kilogram of payload, but here’s the opposite. All this is indisputably interesting in terms of a solution, but it also reminds me of the situation with Reloding, where each cartridge case that has been shot must be washed, cleaned, dried, pressed, and other pleasant and long chores of the relodir. All this time, and as you know, time is money.)))) So in this I do not see a breakthrough, and I consider what was done 30 years ago as a breakthrough, this is the automatic return from the orbit of BURANA, which was not and is not to this day no one.

            In the USA, the same thing happened as in our country. There were no "Petrovichs" who knew that they needed to "finalize with a file" to take off. It's the same in the nuclear industry. For example, the Americans can no longer make nuclear reactor vessels and steam generators (meaning the energy sector, in the military a little better). All of this is now being done in Japan, Korea and China.
            So complex technologies without constant use and development are still lost.

    There is a small question, why did the first astronauts not suffer from weightlessness and were peppy, and the next carried out on a stretcher and saved from heart attacks?

    It is one thing to make a flight lasting several hours or days, months and years are quite another. Doctors systematically studied the effects of weightlessness and space radiation on astronauts and issued relevant recommendations to the spacecraft designer and the developers of auxiliary equipment. Today, few people know that the now-popular running simulators owe their appearance to cosmo-doctors, as well as various kinds of muscle weights and a specific diet with trace elements. Without this routine work, most likely just a jelly with a brain would return to the earth.

    It is regrettable to note that all the glory of the space power of our country falls on the period of the USSR. After 1991, effective managers began to sell everything, including space technology. And at present, Russia performs the function of a space cab, making money on it. But even this is not bad - not every country has access to it.
    For the development of the national economy of the country as a whole and the space industry in particular, Russia needs a nationally oriented government.

      That in 1940, that in 1946 and 1991, the industry of the USSR did not work for the production of consumer goods, but for the needs of heavy industry and a hypertrophied army.

      I read somewhere, before the launch they remembered the story of Powers shot down on May 1, 1960, who, after landing, was caught by Soviet collective farmers and wanted to kill. Powers was in a high-altitude spacesuit. Then they thought that the local men would take the ejected Gagarin for a downed American spy pilot. In order not to be accepted, they decided to write "USSR" on the spacesuit, right before Gagarin's landing in the spacecraft.

    What prevents “Gagarin” from smiling today? Defective economic legacy of the USSR!
    Do not console yourself with the illusions that the USSR was a superpower capable of launching people into space - IT IS NOT TRUE !!!!
    The USSR was not a superpower, and while the bulk of the people in the USSR vegetated in poverty and hopelessness, Gagarin flew into space and smiled from the posters, and the rest were simply envious of him!
    Gagarin was one of the most popular pop stars in the USSR!
    People on rattling buses in a crush drove to a smelly factory, pry nuts from there and rivet metal that nobody needed, and Gagarin rode in a foreign car with thieves numbers and flew over the clouds.
    Therefore, it is necessary to remember once and for all - no even the best of goals can be the basis for the slavish exploitation of their own people for their sake !!!!
    While the USSR was trying to catch up and overtake the United States in a space and rocket race, US citizens rode smart personal cars, worked in clean offices, lived in spacious country houses - for example, my classmate broke their legs in a bus in 1989, she became an invalid for life, pancake went with her mother to the district center for food, in our town there were empty counters, the bus ran almost once a day only and was always jam-packed with sweaty and evil Soviet citizens!
    And any decent person understands space exploration at a time when the production of even basic consumer goods is not mastered at the proper level - another crime against one’s own people authoritarian regime!

      Tell the sellers about slave exploitation in a "five" or "coin" - there are only shackles and a supervisor with a whip is not enough. And locksmiths and turners in the USSR "slavishly" worked for their state, that is, for themselves and their children - and now people work for an uncle who exported our money abroad!
      Reduce bream about foreign cars and luxury too - it is simply incorrect to compare the difference in living standards in the USSR and the Russian Federation. Look at how many MILLION rubles A DAY is received by modern top managers, where Gagarin’s space explorer is there, they fly even higher.
      About "catch up and overtake" - first you need to understand the state of the USSR after the Second World War: the death of 20+ million people, destruction in the crumb of the European part of the country, the militarization of enterprises in the evacuation zone, the destruction of collective farms and villages in the main food zones. The war threw the USSR back by 10-15 years in all respects (except for the production of military products), and it depends on how you count - before the war, the USSR took 5-10 years for ordinary states in 15 years (and this in conditions of political and economic isolation! ). US leaders predicted that it would take decades for the USSR to reach the pre-war level, but by 1950 the USSR had reached pre-war levels in heavy industry and agriculture, only light industry lagged behind. The main merit is the planned economy. Only tough leadership of the country can achieve rapid, purposeful, progressive development of the country. Comparing the libertarian capitalist economic model to the planned communist model is like comparing the human brain to the computer's processor. Yes, one has imaginative thinking, feelings, emotions, etc. But when it is necessary to calculate the trajectory of a satellite in its orbit, it is more convenient to enter data into a PC and get a reliable result in minutes than to sit for days at complex calculations, hoping that he has not made a mistake anywhere. But already now the computer has learned to draw, write books, compose music, no one is surprised by the victory of the computer in chess over a person, the day will come and AI will appear in no way inferior to the human brain. In modern TNCs, rigid planning and management of resources and personnel are used, because it is MORE EFFECTIVE this way. The only problem is the exactingness of the staff, because if a dropout and tyrant such as Khrushchev or the senile Brezhnev is at the helm, then any effective system can be thrown into the Stone Age. And the ravings about liberalism are left to liars and traitors - the chaotic Brownian motion of particles leads to diffusion, and directed to electric current, water supply, jet thrust.

        Nonsense!
        Under the USSR, hard workers went to work mainly to thump there, and not to work.
        Because if you work hard and get 400 rubles, or if you do nothing and get 100 rubles, then you still in reality have one income, which is enough only for food.
        Because an ordinary hard worker could not buy high-quality consumer goods, they could only be bought "by pull" and very often only for currency, and neither one nor the other and a hard worker in the USSR was not!
        And if in the 50-60s people still believed in something, then by the 70s the main motto was "if you want this, but if you want to strike, you will get the strike anyway" !!!

        So what? By working for an uncle, people earn more because they work for a more efficient owner!
        Before the crisis, the average salary in Moscow was more than $ 1000 in the private sector, and in the USSR in the public sector less than $ 200.
        At the same time, ZP was paid in rubles, and something normal could be bought only for currency.

          1. And what is the difference in getting 100 rubles and eating healthy food or getting 5000 and eating soy sausage, drinking palm milk, eating surrogate bread.
          do not compare the USSR of the 1960-70s and what the rulers and traitors brought to 1991. for some reason after the war already by the 1950s there was a normal supply of the population, and after 40 years people suddenly had nothing to do - is it strange, right?
          And if your father and mother thumped, drank their salary, then don’t have to transfer the heavy destiny to the whole state. With skill, parents honestly railed all their lives, got an apartment for the state account. And bring your suppressed childhood injuries to a therapist, otherwise you will be bent by a notorious man-hater.
          2. When working for an uncle, people do not receive the MINIMUM LOWEST salary because it is NOT FAVORABLE for a private trader to pay a high salary. where do they get normal money in large state-owned corporations? in the oil industry? officials, cops? And teachers, doctors are sitting at the bottom of the pffff losers. How is modern growth due to loans of 20% per annum? due to expensive oil? and what other than this we have, the oil bubble burst, sanctions were imposed, and that’s all, immediately the decline in living standards began. bestial grin of capitalism, his mother ...
          under the USSR, $ 200 didn’t mean anything - almost all products were produced domestically, they could wipe themselves with a green candy wrapper. and now everything is imported, from abroad, so we pray for candy wrappers with dead presidents. USE victim does not understand the difference?
          3. Open the business, what is the problem? become the king of life! all you need to take a millionth loan from the bank at 20%. and then give it to officials. and hope that the next round of the crisis will not take off your last pants. go for it!
          4. Well, yes, they skidded, so skipped ... you yourself are not ashamed to call millions of victims cowards? It's a pity your ancestors did not die in those battles, then there would be no alcoholic parents and their child-schichophrenic. The Red Army ground the fascist army, there was no other way to win, the Wehrmacht was objectively stronger in 1941, plus ALL of Europe fought with Germany (with the exception of England). Anticipating the release about Lend-Lease and the Second Front - look when the deliveries began, how much they delivered to England, when the Allies opened the front - and stop pouring slops on the USSR.

            get 100 rubles and eat healthy food or get 5000 and eat soy sausage,

            Do not lie! Life expectancy in the USA was higher than in the USSR with its "super natural sausage"!
            And by the way, in order to buy this Soviet sausage with rats falling in minced meat from rusty pipes, it was sometimes necessary to travel a couple of hundred kilometers by train to Moscow or some other large city!
            But even there the saleswoman could ask for a residence permit and without Moscow registration she couldn’t sell the products, and one could even cry, but the fat Moscow saleswoman could not get through this - the main ration of the Soviet man was bread, pasta and chicken bones.

            So others have not been since 1937! It was then that they finished off almost the last smart and decent in the leadership of the country!

            after the war, by the 1950s there was a normal supply of the population,

            After the war, the last famine in 1946-48 claimed millions of human lives, by 1951 people had finally almost reached the levels of 1913 and even ceased to die from hunger

            And if your father and mother thumped, drank their salary, then don’t have to transfer the heavy destiny to the whole state.

            My father was from the "party nomenklatura" (political officer of the division in 1991) and my great-uncle was the minister of the Union republic, and my grandfather was a lieutenant general, and I know 100500 times better how the "elite" lived in the USSR and how the bulk of the population!
            In 1985-1991, my family ate sausage, meat, vegetables, fruits every day, my father had a car, and 2 color TVs at home - but even this was negligible compared to normal life in a normal country!

            It should only be a shame for you, judging by the nickname of almost the same age as me, you grew up in a democratic country, and do not bear such nonsense that even the majority of people are too lazy to comment!

    Well, a little about Gagarin himself.
    It is not a secret for any literate person that Titov German was most suitable for the "title" of the first cosmonaut both in terms of personal and professional qualities!
    But Gagarin was lucky, unlike the talented and responsible Titov Gagarin had the right origin and a Hollywood and stupid smile!
    As a result, gogovaty Gagarin had a scar on his eyebrows (he fell drunk from the balcony, running away from his lover's husband), rode drunk on foreign cars along the roads of the USSR and in the end killed himself and the car and his partner colonel, which received only due to the flight into space.
    And German Titov honestly rose to Colonel General.
    And having a brain already on the basis of this will say a lot about the adequacy of personnel policy in the USSR.

    I congratulate everyone on the holiday - Cosmonautics Day! I largely agree with the author of the article (special thanks for the article). Korolevs, Gagarins, Glushko must be raised and educated from kindergartens. The bias towards the humanities in universities begins to correct only now. This year, the competition for places in the faculties of exact sciences at Moscow State University has grown significantly and this, as they say, is a good trend. I would like to comment on statements like: "We must first put things in order on earth in the economy, medicine, and then into space ..." Yes, with our level of medicine (try to get qualified medical help, especially for children ...), but we must "raise head. " If you look exclusively at your feet, you won't "fall", but you won't "fly" either.

    Many human thanks to Yuri Alekseevich Gagarin, Sergey Pavlovich Korolev and thousands of other people who were involved in this project, but whose names we will probably never recognize. The result of their work is a real occasion for national pride!

    April 12, Russia celebrates one of those holidays, which is a reminder of the outstanding technological successes of mankind.

    A holiday for all the republics of the former USSR.
    Gagarin Russian, Korolev-Ukrainian, was launched in Kazakhstan.
    The current government should not be smeared by the holiday, but draw serious conclusions. And ordinary people, of course, are the main technological holiday of our country and the whole world too !!!

    "April 12 for Russia today is not only an occasion to widely celebrate the 55th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space as the anniversary of a technological breakthrough, but also an occasion to think about a value system"...

    Mdaaaa ... I remembered ... Joyful faces on the streets, people (strangers !!!) laugh, and who cries, hugs ...

    It was a common victory and a common joy ...

    What is about to happen so that we united again both in joy and in grief ???

      What should happen now, so that we reunite in joy and sorrow again ???

      The real achievements of the country, and not this diarrhea from the TV that the whole world is preventing us from living, and we are the best. But the authorities really like the current alignment. Their goal is to sit still, to spit on their development, on their future. And this TV only teaches to hate, not to rejoice. At the same forum, many rejoice in deaths in Europe, in Ukraine, etc., around the fifth column, liberals, CIA agents, traitorous oligarchs, etc.
      And these topics are the most read. And how many articles about the achievements of science? Minuscule. What about the superjet here they write, nothing. About achievements in medicine? Genetics? The same space?
      Everyone only needs blood. Planting all the poplars, fighting the floor of the world ... And this is against the backdrop of a contraction in the salary, winding up business, theft of officials by billions and their lies with impunity. In this country it is impossible to rejoice .... today.

        So where are all these achievements? They are not here. There are very few breakthrough projects. But I know firsthand about the next reduction in funding for the RAS. I myself work in the state structure, not only did I fire a bunch of people, throwing them on their remaining duties, they also reduced salaries, and all sorts of quarterly bonuses, bonuses, etc. just canceled. Get lost perspective. So rejoice after this life in such conditions.

        And here I agree completely. Often you have to intersect and communicate with the Japanese people of various backgrounds, mainly students. How much smarter, kinder and simply look at the world easier. You communicate with them and as if you are breaking away from our reality for a short time, you feel some lightness and serenity.

    The first manned space flight is a landmark event for all of humanity. I am proud that this first person was a citizen of the Soviet Union. Judging by the information that there is a real officer about him, he was a shirtless guy with a sincere and bewitching smile, a noble, honest, companionable, modest, handsome man, so it’s good for me if it is people like Gagarin who, when mentioned, will cause associations with the USSR \ Russia.

    The USSR opened the way to space for people, and the Americans became the best promoters of space. The films they shot in the Mojave Desert, about the flights of Americans to the moon, for decades established the steadfastness of everything American on the whole earth and in space. And then they killed the USSR. A holiday with tears in his eyes.

    Happy holiday everyone! This incredible triumph happened less than some 16 years after the Great Victory, which was so hard on it. Just think, part of the country was in ruins, a huge number of dead, wounded, and after all this, not the Americans, who received huge amounts of money in the war, but our Soviet man was the first to make this space flight. From the point of view of all the "economics" imposed on us, this could not happen in principle, but it happened. And in this there is some kind of higher, maybe even divine justice!

    Today is a bright and great celebration of the superiority of the Soviet economy over the capitalist system. Only the unification of the whole people to achieve the goal can provide such a result. Happy holiday !!!
    Despite all the negatives added in the comments, no one can prove that in the next 50 years any country will be able to carry out interplanetary flights without Russia. And this margin of safety was laid by our ancestors.
    A low bow to them for this !!!
    This is, first of all, their HOLIDAY !!!
