Yuri Gagarin Day Today

First of all it is Yuri Gagarin day today and I have to say that he was really a very cool human. The first human in space is a pretty big thing, but then on the other paw humans were beaten into space by Monkeys, Dogs and Cats some of whom not only made it into space but returned back to the Earth like Yuri Gagarin.

Yuri Gagarin 12 April 1960

It’s sad to think that the humans who helped all of those brave animals into space didn’t always have a plan for their return and all too many Cats, Dogs and Monkeys died in order to make sure that it was safe for mankind to tiptoe into the stars.
