Yesterday saw the successful launch of the space ship 'Gagarin', so named to honour the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. You can watch the launch via my RT LINK at top rt.
The 'Gagarin' is on its way, with its crew of 3, to rendezvous with the ISS.
There's a Yuri Gagarin poem you can read here if you enter 'Yuri Gagarin' in the blog search-box.
