Catalogue Note

An excellent, high fidelity model made for exhibition purposes by NPO Energia, the Russian manufacturer of the Vostok. Vostok-1 was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome carrying Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, on April 12, 1961, making him the first human in space. The Vostok program, pursued in secret by the Russians in competition with the United States Project Mercury, was one of the Soviet Union's greatest triumphs, along with their launch of the Sputnik-1 which sparked the Space Race.
