On April 12, 1961, Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin made the world’s first manned space flight, orbiting the planet. It was the Soviet people, with their enthusiasm and heroic work, who made this huge step into the future possible.
This day glorified before the whole world the socialist homeland of the first cosmonaut, the ideas of communism and scientific and technological progress. For many years, this date was very important for the Soviet people.
We remember that humanity’s space age began in the Soviet Union, and call upon our comrades to prepare for the celebration of Cosmonautics Day under red banners. That is, above all, our outreach and educational task.
What can be organized on that day under the red flag?
1. Drawing competition on the pavement on the theme of space, rockets, satellites, cosmonauts, etc. Venue: any popular place in your city.
2. Arrange flowers or flower bed in the form of rockets or satellites.
3. Distribute balloons with the image of Gagarin / rocket / satellite.
4. Using pegs and ribbon, depict figures on the space theme.
5. Flash mob on the space theme with red and yellow sheets of paper (as in the opening / closing of the 1980 Moscow Olympics).
6. Conduct a group sing-along of Soviet songs about space and cosmonauts; organize a concert and distribute balloons near monuments to astronauts, designers, and Soviet scientists, on the central square, of near a monument to Lenin.
