My Orbiter web page - vessels catalog

Posted 05-31-2011 at 02:50 PM by vchamp

One day I was planning a new mission and wanted to know which vessels are suitable for it. There is no centralized source of information about ships characteristics and abilities. At least I don't know such sources. So it was inconvenient to make the search in different docs.

From Vostok 1...
When Russia's Yuri Gagarin launched into space with Vostok 1, on April 12th, 1961, he only spent 108 minutes in orbit before returning to Earth.
But his miraculous journey bought the cosmos to Earth for all mankind and broke ground for a startling array of galactic achievements involving man in space that we still continue to herald today.

Gagarin was a gentlemen and a spiritual martyr in his own right; one of the elite of the Soviet Air Force ,
