On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched the first man-made satellite Sputnik 1. This word became so popular that it even spread to other languages.
Two years later Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman to conduct a space flight.
The docking of the Soviet Union’s Soyuz and the United States’ Apollo in 1975 gave the world a ray of hope amid the darkness of the Cold War and proved that the two superpowers could peacefully work together for the good of civilization.
On April 27, Russia will carry out the first launch from the Vostochny space center.
