April 12 - Now Marked Worldwide
10:19
UN declares April 12 as International Day of Human Space Flight.

The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution at a special session on Thursday (April 07, 2011) declaring April 12 the International Day of Human Space Flight.
The resolution was initiated by Russia, which celebrates Cosmonautics Day on April 12 dedicated to the historic first manned flight to space by Russia's Yury Gagarin in 1961.
"Fifty years have passed since that amazing voyage, but the legend of Gagarin's courage and journey to the 'final frontier' continues to be a source of inspiration for space exploration for peoples and nations around the world," Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, was quoted as saying on the UN Website.
