Mos 8 – In memory of Y. Gagarin

What not to say, soviet times brought some marvellous achievements to the Russian Nation, one of which for sure was first ever flight into space by a human – Yuriy Gagarin in 1961. Shortly before the space was also “invaded” by animals – dog Layka, a first living creature from Earth to go beyond the Earth orbit  (1957) and other animals, who went into space and happily came back (dogs Bielka and Strelka, mice, bacteria and some seeds – 1960).

There are numerous objects who commemorate these successess in Moscow (their amount probably has its roots in former Soviet propaganda).
