First Orbit

On April 12th 1961 (54 years ago today)  Yuri Gagarin saw what no other person has seen in the history of humanity – the Earth from space. By matching the orbital path of the Space Station, as closely as possible, to that of Gagarin’s Vostok 1 spaceship and filming the same vistas of the Earth through the new giant cupola window, astronaut Paolo Nespoli, and documentary film maker Christopher Riley, have captured a new digital high definition view of the Earth below, half a century after Gagarin first witnessed it.
