April 12, 1961. At a top secret rocket site in the USSR, a young Russian sits inside a tiny capsule on top of a powerful intercontinental ballistic missile—originally designed to carry a nuclear warhead—and blasts into the skies. His name is Yuri Gagarin, and he is about to make history as the first man in space.
