SKY IN RED
On 12 April 1961, Gagarin became the first human to travel into space, launching to orbit aboard the Vostok 3KA-2 (Vostok 1). His call sign in this flight was Kedr. During his flight, Gagarin famously whistled the tune "Родина слышит, Родина знает". The first two lines of the song are: "The Motherland hears, the Motherland knows/Where her son flies in the sky". From orbit Gagarin made the comment, ,,"I don't see any God up here”.
