Kamchatka celebrates Cosmonautics Day
12 April is an International Cosmonautics Day. 55 years ago, 12 April 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin made a first manned space flight.

Kamchatka takes an important place in the field of space exploration. One of the Russian space flight-control centres is located here.

Today, in many schools of Kamchatka there were lessons, competitions and creative games dedicated to Yuri Gagarin and space.
