Fifty one years ago today, Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space, saying those famous words “Okazyvaietsya, ona golubaya”. Thats, “It is confirmed, she is blue” for any non Russian speaking people.
The first animals in space were volunteer fruit flies, that were specialy trained in the Florida Fly Gymnasium (FFG). Their first words were “Buzzz zz z zzz Buzzz” which roughly translated means “These radiation levels are unbearable”.
Today is celebrated as a public holiday in Russia and other former USSR countries.
