Yuri Gagarin by Mintaka-TK Yuri Gagarin by Mintaka-TK
I don't think I've ever come across any stamps of Gagarin on dA, so I had to make one.

Ain't he just the cutest spaceman you've ever seen? :blush: Yes, I do know that the correct term is 'cosmonaut'. :P

In all seriousness, however, Yuri Gagarin was a wonderful man who pioneered human space travel, and space exploration in general from his historic flight in 1961. It upsets me greatly that he died young (in a jet crash in 1968) - I would have loved to have met him. :cry:

Is it just me, or does he look like a girl? :D

Yuri always looked mysteriously young for his age... I once heard someone comment that he looked like a nine-year old in certain pictures.

Look at that smile - 'tis so adorable...

He was a great man, and unlike most great men, it wasn't for achievements in war, but in peace. :)

There's a reason his smile was described as the "light that lit up the Cold War". :D
