Yuri Gagarin

by Ruslan from Philadelphia


My hero is Yuri Gagarin. He was born March 9, 1934 Klushino, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union..
I chose him because if he didn't fly to space we would not be in space where we are right now.
They chose him to fly to space because he had good experience with airplanes like a space ship.
He was in space for 1 hour and 48 minutes.
He flew planes for a living in the Soviet Union.
Some struggle that he over came is flying to space 
When he was a kid his sister had to take care of him because his parents worked at their farm.
