Exactly 55 years ago, on 12 April 1961, mankind pushed back the frontiers of science, when for the first time, a cosmonaut flew into space. Yuri Gagarin, a young Soviet pilot, travelled for 108 minutes around Earth, before successfully returning home.

On this day in 1961, aboard the Vosotok 1 spacecraft, Gagarin thus became the first man to ever take a look at the view of Earth from space, as he orbited around the "blue planet" at a maximum speed of 18,000 miles an hour.

The 12 of April was officially made International Day of Human Space Flight in 2011 to mark the 50th anniversary of Gagarin's pioneer journey, which paved the way for all subsequent space exploration.
