On April 12, 1961, at 09:07 Moscow time, a rocket with the Vostok spacecraft-satellite flown by pilot-cosmonaut Yuri Alexeyevich Gagarin was launched from the Cosmodrome near the Baikonur station.
The Vostok 1 spacecraft-satellite descent vehicle has been kept in the Museum hall of NPO Energia ever since, which is named after Academician S.P. Korolev.
All structural elements, devices and units of the Vostok spacecraft-satellite descent vehicle are original (except for the interior lining, reconstructed due to deterioration).
