Long Description:
DE:
Juri Gagarin war der erste Mensch im Weltraum. Im April 1961 umrundete er in seiner Raumkapsel Wostok 1 in 108 Minuten einmal den Blauen Planeten, wobei er bis zu 330 Kilometer entfernt über unsere Erde hinwegflog. „Ich sehe Wolken … es ist wunderschön, was für eine Schönheit“, funkte der Kosmonaut zur Erde. Jeder kennt Gagarins Namen, doch die wenigsten Bonner wissen, dass sich sein Kopf immer noch mehr als 10 Meter hoch über Bad Godesberg befindet. Gagarins ungefähr einen Meter großes Abbild war in der damaligen sowjetischen Botschaft im Godesberger Stadtteil Schweinheim ausgestellt und wurde schließlich vor über 20 Jahren mit einem Fiat 500 ins Villenviertel befördert, wo der Kopf des ersten Raumfahrers noch heute in der Beethovenallee von einem Hausdach lugt

Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space. In April 1961, he rounded the blue planet in space capsule Vostok 1 in 108 minutes, flying over our earth up to 330 kilometers away. "I see clouds ... it's beautiful, what a beauty," the cosmonaut sparked to earth. Everyone knows Gagarin's name, but very few people in Bonn know that his head is still more than 10 meters above Bad Godesberg. Gagarin's image, about a meter in size, was exhibited in the former Soviet embassy in the Godesberg district of Schweinheim and was finally transported to the villa quarter with a Fiat 500 over 20 years ago, where the head of the first astronaut still peeks from a rooftop in Beethovenallee
