April 12 again. Let’s take a centrifuge trip with the Soviet Starman.
Yuri Gagarin wears the innovative SK-1 spacesuit. The lettering “CCCP” (USSR) present in his Helmet denotes this video must have been shot after his historic mission. Originally the helmet was all white; the “CCCP” was added after a last-minute decision taken the same day of Gagarin’s flight.
