First Orbit – What Yuri Gagarin Saw

First Orbit – a new film about Yuri Gagarin’s flight into history. The official site is

On 12th April 2011 it will be 50 years to the day since Yuri Gagarin climbed into his space ship and was launched into space. It took him just 108 minutes to orbit Earth and he returned as the World’s very first space man.

To mark this historic flight we have teamed up with the astronauts onboard the International Space Station to film a new view of what Yuri would have seen as he traveled around the planet.

Weaving these new views together with historic voice recordings from Yuri’s flight and an original score by composer Philip Sheppard, we have created a spellbinding film to share with people around the World on this historic anniversary.

We have partnered with YouTube to host a special global premiere of the film on the 12th April.” – via First Orbit
