It would be nice for us all to spare a thought for Colonel Gagarin today. Maybe a quick toast with a shot of vodka (or whatever your tipple) to remember him and what he achieved as an "ordinary bloke" from a humble background.

One of the first things I learnt as a kid when I became fascinated with the space race was the name of Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin.

Here's to you Yuri. :)
