Yuri Gagarin 50 Years -- March 27, 2018

50 years ago today, on 27-March-1968, Yuri Gagarin, the first man to fly in space, died in a plane crash.  We didn't learn much about him or the rest of the Soviet space program when I was in school.
On 12-April-1961 he rode Vostock I into space and orbited the earth before returning safely.
