  • Astronaut John W. Young - Tribute to Yuri Gagarin
    only 10 years ago Cosmonaut Gagarin demonstrated for all the world that man could fly in space Though the lapse of time is short the past decade has given us the perspective to see the significance of his flight even more clearly than we could that memorable day in April 1961 It was more than an indispensable first step in man s mastery of space It was a major milestone on man s route to the Moon and some day perhaps to the stars When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon they honored Yuri Gagarin by leaving behind one of his medals There on the Mare Tranquilitus it remains with a medal that belonged to Comsonaut Vladimir Komorov and an Apollo shoulder patch commemorating the American astronauts Gus Grissom Ed White and Roger Chaffee These tokens lie near a plaque which reads Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon July 1969 A D We came in peace for all mankind We pay special honor to Gagarin tonight on the 10th anniversary of his epochal flight In doing so we honor the man and his deeds In another sense we honor something more all mankind and our common humanity The life of Yuri Gagarin bears witness to the infinite human potential for achievement Space flight through the miracle of modern communications it has done so much to amplify has given us all a view of the Earth that emphasizes its physical unity The view of our planet in all its shimmering beauty underscores the uniqueness in the solar system The image of the home of man of all mankind small and blue and beautiful in the dark of space dramatizes the need for all men and nations to work together What better tribute
