Product Description

About the Vostok 1 - With R-7 Rocket:

The post-World War II era saw the advancement of rocket technology based on German research during the war. Several countries set out to design rockets as Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) to deliver weapons of mass destruction. The Soviet Union deployed the R-7 series as their primary ICBM, but they later used the rocket for a different purpose: space travel. In 1961, the Vostok 1 capsule delivered by the R-7 rocket enabled Yuri Gagarin to be the first person to successfully orbit the Earth and return safely. Roughly 60 short years after Kitty Hawk and the first flight, human beings travelled into space. Anyone living during this time could have very well seen both the first airplanes and the first person in space.

Specifications:

  • Capsule weight: 2.4 tons (2177 kg)
  • Orbit time: 108 minutes
  • Maximum height: 203 mi (326 km)
  • Maximum speed: 17,500 mph (28,163 km/h)
