To boldly go.....Where we aren't going anymore

It's coming up on the 50th anniversary of Mankind's first venture into space. People will think of the Apollo missions as being the pinacle but let's not forget the man who was the true pioneer.

April 12, 1961. For 108 minutes this man, Yuri Gagarin,  was our Magellan. Forget where he came from and the circumstances that propelled him aloft, he was a pioneer and deserves a nod.
