|My congratulations on Cosmonautics Day! |
In this day, 12 April 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin made the first in the history space flight. Read a brief history about Yuri Gagarin in my previous news about this date («Поехали!»).
Interesting to know. Other space achievements of Soviet Union:
And more, more other...
The project of metal controlled balloon (airship), the monoplane idea (before decades to the first airplanes), wind tunnel and the chassis prototypes, the theory of rocket production were invented and developed by Russian scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935). A lot of the first cosmical theories and ideas connected with development of spaceships also were invented by Yuri Kondratyuk (1897-1942).
Also I have updated one of the my little mods — The rocket in the honor of the Cosmonautics Day. Originally it was released in 2012.
You can download this mod for GTA: San Andreas by the link. After installation, you can find a rocket in the desert.
