International Day of Human Flight Into Space

The beginning of the space era for mankind

12 April 1961 was the date of the first human space flight, carried out by #YuriGagarin, a Soviet citizen. This historic event opened the way for space exploration for the benefit of all humanity.

In 2011, the #UN General Assembly declared 12 April as the International Day of Human Space Flight “to celebrate each year at the international level the beginning of the space era for mankind, reaffirming the important contribution of space science and technology in achieving sustainable development goals and increasing the well-being of States and peoples, as well as ensuring the realization of their aspiration to maintain outer space for peaceful purposes.”
