Yuri Gagarin

Google today has a special logo, which has a spacecraft orbiting the Earth, and which says "Yuri Gagarin" if you point your mouse at it.

Gagarin became the first person in space, and the first person to orbit the Earth, this day in 1961. Read more in Wikipedia (subject to the usual caveats about Wikipedia: lots of debate about this in various places, and maybe I will blog about it. But now I need to do some work).
