The journey that shook the world

From the BBC comes this report to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's 108-minute flight around the Earth, which started human spaceflight.

The feat was also a major propaganda coup for the Soviet Union, which had successfully launched the first satellite, Sputnit, in 1957.

In this report you can also watch an interview with Yuri Gagarin.
