Conquest of Space – Historical Documentary Record of the First Manned Space-Orbit Flight by Major Yuri Gagarin.

Short Description

Not a number one record at the time and so rare and collectable now. A great gift for any space buff with a record turntable.

A Britone 45rpm mono recording in collaboration with Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga, USSR and with acknowledgement to the USSR Academy of Sciences.

On 12th April 1961 Vostok was launched into space with Yuri Gagarin on board. Vostok orbited the Earth at 18 thousand miles per hour at up to 203 miles above the Earth’s surface. Gagarin 28 years old was the very first spaceman.

The record includes Moscow Radio’s announcement of the successful launch an that Vostok was in orbit; Some bars from the song Gagarin sang during his decent back to Earth; Gagarin speaking prior to the flight; Gagarin’s speech at the later Red Square reception and that of Krushchev; the Press Conference at the Scientists Club, Moscow … and another Gagarin musical favourite “I love you, life”.

Note for those challenged by the Russian language each element is followed by an English translation.

Pretty special the first man in Space and an unusual useable period tribute.

Price: $50.00
