1961 - First Man in Space (Yuri Gagarin with the Vostok 1 Rocket)

The Vostok 1 spacecraft with Gagarin aboard was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome. Gagarin thus became both the first human to travel into space, and the first to orbit the Earth. His call sign was Kedr. Vostok 1 marked his only spaceflight, but he served as backup crew to the Soyuz 1 mission.
