50th Anniversary of the First Human Spaceflight

Google celebrated Yuri Gagarin’s 50th anniversary of the first human spaceflight on Tuesday with a new doodle on their homepage.
The doodle captures Mr. Gagarin in a spacesuit forming the infamous “Google” logo.
“It’s interesting to see the different sketches and illustrations Google puts together,” Bill Richardson, a resident of San Francisco, told Politically Illustrated. “It’s their way of competing with Bing’s daily eye candy.”
Mr. Gagarin was a Soviet pilot and cosmonaut in the early 60s. He was the first human to journey into outer space when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on April 12, 1961.
He died in 1968 when a Mig 15 training jet he was piloting crashed. He was 34-years-old.
“I wonder how each new Google doodle improves traffic for the company,” said Mr. Richardson. “I love viewing new Google doodles!”
