Event Name:  Yuri Gagarin and the Chief Designer: A Talk by Terry Ransome
Event Description:  Monday 4th October, 12pm - 1pm, including Q&A. Free with museum entry on a first-come first-served basis. Yuri Gagarin was the first human to orbit the Earth. Some will remember hearing of that momentous achievement on 12th April 1961 – over 60 years ago. But there is a lot more to the story….. Yuri came from a peasant background, but his determination to succeed shone through his childhood and youth. His flight into space came at the height of the ‘space race’ and the ‘cold war’. So much of his life story (including his tragic and mysterious death) and the background to his achievement were kept secret by the Soviet Union for over 40 years. Behind the Soviet space programme was Sergei Korolev, known until his death only as ‘The Chief Designer’. His story is equally moving.
