Yuri Gagarin 50th anniversary

The 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s flight is not just important for Russia and America, those two great pioneering space nations. It’s also important for the UK. Last year I attended a session in our very own Houses of Parliament, where UK guest cosmonaut Helen Sharman made a presentation on behalf of a new UK organisation called yurigagarin50.org.┬áIts aims are to showcase UK and Russian achievements in space and highlight their benefits to all of us. This is also a unique opportunity for Russian and British science and educational communities to share common ideas and get to know each aother a little better. Take a look at their website and let them know of any events that you might be planning as we head towards celebrating the epic achievement of the first man in space.

Like our great Coalition Government keeps telling us, “we’re all in this together!”
