Gagarin's onboard Vostok 1 spacecraft on 12 Apr 1961
Launch of Vostok 1 spacecraft on 12th April 1961 from Baikonur, Kazakhstan with onboard images of Yuri Gagarin. During this historic spaceflight, Gagarin became the first human in space. He circled the Earth once in a flight that lasted 1 hour and 48 minutes. The Vostok 1 capsule (not seen) was located on top of this rocket, the Vostok-K, the booster stage of which is seen here. This initial booster stage used four engines that burnt a mixture of rocket fuel and liquid oxygen for 118 seconds before later stages took over and completed the process of boosting Vostok 1 and Gagarin into orbit.
