Explorers Heroes

Yury Gagarin

by Andrey from Novosibirsk

My hero is Yury Gagarin. He was born in USSR, Smolensk. He dreamt to become the cosmonaut since childhood. He aspired to the purpose and has achieved it. He has been the first cosmonaut. He has flown round the Earth for 1 hour and 48 minutes. He is my hero, because he was courageous - the first who has been to space. He was modest, he has passed test by glory and has won. He was kind and always helped friends.
