In 1961 President John F. Kennedy started the United States on a path of discovery and exploration that captures the best of mankind's spirit. On April 12th, 1961, the Soviet Union reports the successful launch, orbit and reentry of the first man in space, Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin pushing the cold war into a space duel. With the collapse of communism and the rise of freedom in the Russian Federation, recent access to documents in the Kremlin archives reveal a story intended to remain buried forever. Yuri Gagarin, the icon of triumphant communism known world over, was not the first man in space. He was preceded by Vladimir Ilyushin, an unsung hero and the man at the center of this decades old conspiracy. Written by Denny Hooten

"I grew up in Moscow in the very end of the Soviet regime, and I remember singing the Soviet anthem and other Soviet songs as a kid. It really helped me in writing the lyrics for the song. When my mom heard it, she said she was amazed how real it felt", Marina adds. See more »
