That Very Place Where the First Man in Space Died

55 years ago a man flew to space and what's more important he managed to come back!

circle where the craft crashed, is still heartbreaking. For most Russian people Yura Gagarin is an ideal person, almost unreal. He undoubtedly deserved to be the first man in space.
