Cosmonauts Day

April 12 is International Day of Human Space Flight. It commemorates the anniversary of the first human manned space flight buy Yuri Gargarin on April 12, 1961. Gargarin was 27 years old and he circled the Earth for 1 hour and 48 minutes.

Here I am holding my child up against the statue of Yuri Gargarin in Moscow, Russia. I love that statue.
