Today is the 12th of April, and on that day in Russia and and some other former USSR countries people are celebrating the day of Cosmonautics. In 2011, April the 12th was declared as the International Day of Human Space Flight in dedication of the first manned space flight made on April, 12th 1961 by the 27-year-old Russian (Soviet) cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.
So happy 12th of April to all! And happy birthday to my dad, who was born on the 12th!
с днем рожденья, папа!
