Amazing Facts

Russia the first country to launch a man into space

Russia was the first country to launch a man into space

His name was Gagarin.Yuri Gagarin. This man was the first
in mankind's history who made it to orbit and successfully flew
around the globe several times on 12th of April 1961.
