Cosmonaut Savitskaya at a Moscow press conference STORYLINE: Russia risks losing its edge in space by relying exclusively on Soviet-era achievements and doing little to design new spacecraft, a Russian cosmonaut warned on Monday as the nation marked the 50th anniversary of the first human spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin. Svetlana Savitskaya, who flew two space missions in 1982 and 1984 and became the first woman to make a spacewalk, harshly criticised the Kremlin for paying little attention to achievements in space after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. "There's nothing new to be proud of in the last 20 years," said Savitskaya, a Communist Party member of Russia's parliament. Space officials from both Russia and the US and astronauts from around the world arrived paid tributes to Gagarin, whose 108-minute flight on April 12, 1961 spurred America to race for the moon. Guests at Moscow's space museum admired a huge monument to Gagarin as well as a model of Sputnik, the world's first satellite. U.S. officials presented a collage of Gagarin photos to Anatoly Perminov, the head of Russia's space agency Roskosmos, to mark the event. American astronaut, Thomas Stafford, an Apollo 10 commander, said that without Gagarin's success he may have never gone to the moon. "We were preparing, but they (Russia) beat us. I think in the end it was probably better because after the Gagarin flight, then President Kennedy reacted back," he said. Stafford was the commander of the Apollo 10 mission that approached within eight miles (13 kilometres) of the moon in May 1969, the last U.S. mission before the U.S. moon landing three months later. Russian cosmonaut Valeri Kubasov also spoke about the space race between the two superpowers. "Our competition with America was rushing, hurrying up the first man to space flight," said Kubasov. On display at the celebration were a selection of items from that first flight and huge posters of a young Gagarin in his space suit, to mark the 50th anniversary event.

Cosmonaut Savitskaya at a Moscow press conference STORYLINE: Russia risks losing its edge in space by relying exclusively on Soviet-era achievements and doing little to design new spacecraft, a Russian cosmonaut warned on Monday as the nation marked the 50th anniversary of the first human spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin. Svetlana Savitskaya, who flew two space missions in 1982 and 1984 and became the first woman to make a spacewalk, harshly criticised the Kremlin for paying little attention to achievements in space after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. "There's nothing new to be proud of in the last 20 years," said Savitskaya, a Communist Party member of Russia's parliament. Space officials from both Russia and the US and astronauts from around the world arrived paid tributes to Gagarin, whose 108-minute flight on April 12, 1961 spurred America to race for the moon. Guests at Moscow's space museum admired a huge monument to Gagarin as well as a model of Sputnik, the world's first satellite. U.S. officials presented a collage of Gagarin photos to Anatoly Perminov, the head of Russia's space agency Roskosmos, to mark the event. American astronaut, Thomas Stafford, an Apollo 10 commander, said that without Gagarin's success he may have never gone to the moon. "We were preparing, but they (Russia) beat us. I think in the end it was probably better because after the Gagarin flight, then President Kennedy reacted back," he said. Stafford was the commander of the Apollo 10 mission that approached within eight miles (13 kilometres) of the moon in May 1969, the last U.S. mission before the U.S. moon landing three months later. Russian cosmonaut Valeri Kubasov also spoke about the space race between the two superpowers. "Our competition with America was rushing, hurrying up the first man to space flight," said Kubasov. On display at the celebration were a selection of items from that first flight and huge posters of a young Gagarin in his space suit, to mark the 50th anniversary event.
