2021 marks the 60th anniversary of the first human spaceflight. On April 12, 1961, the Vostok-1 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome. For the first time in history, a spacecraft with a human on board went into outer space, making a flight in the orbit of the planet Earth. The flight duration was 1 hour and 48 minutes. This day has forever gone down in history as the day of the conquest of space by man.
