Vostok 1

A nice Russian Vostok 1 documentary.

Fancy being a Cosmonaut? Check out the centrifuge and ejection testing from 1:00.

Rotate spacecraft to align arrows with direction of Earth before reentry!



  1. Oh, USSR. The country where I was born. All boys wanted to be pioneers and cosmonauts like Yuri Gagarin. Nice video!
