A thrilling tale of one of humanity's greatest adventures, a battle of wits, will, genius and extraordinary courage as the Soviets and Americans raced to put the first human in space.

On April 12, 1961, twenty-seven-year old Yuri Gagarin, a Russian ex-foundry worker and loyal Communist, climbed inside a tiny spherical capsule on top of the Soviet Union's most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile - originally designed to carry a nuclear warhead-and blasted into the skies. Eleven minutes later he was in orbit, the first human ever to leave the planet.
