First In Space: Vostok-1 Pilot Yuri Gagarin | Following seven test flights (several of the failures) carrying animals and equipment, the Vostok spacecraft is deemed ready to carry a human passenger. On April 12, 1961, a 27-year-old Soviet Air Force pilot makes history. Strapped to his ejection seat, Gagarin rides inside the 7 1/2 foot-wide (2.3 meter) pressurized cabin...

See how the first human spaceflight actually occurred when the Soviet Union launched cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on Vostok 1 on April Yuri Gagarin orbited the Earth for 108 minutes to usher in the age of human spaceflight

How Apollo Worked | The science showing that flight to the moon was possible was worked out in the 17th century, but it took until the mid-20th century for engineering and technology to advance enough to make it happen.

How Apollo Worked Diagrams and NASA artwork show how Apollo astronauts flew to the moon.

The Command Service Module separates from the Saturn, then couples with the Lunar Module, removing it from the launch vehicle.

The Apollo Command Service Module separates from the Saturn V Stage Rocket, then coupled with the Lunar Module, removing it from the launch vehicle.

The capsule will travel about 3,600 miles (5,800 kilometers) from Earth, then zoom back again at high speeds in order to test various systems, including its heat shielding and resistance to radiation.

Project: Gemini - The moon is closer as missions focus more on working towards a lunar landing.  Capsules stay in orbit, but for much longer after launching on Titan rockets, and spacewalks are first performed during Gemini. To purchase prints go to scbb11Sketch's Imagekind

Project Gemini was NASA's second human spaceflight programme. It started in 1961 and concluded in
