On March 9, legendary Soviet cosmonaut Yury Gagarin, the first man in space, would have turned 80. His 108-minute epic orbital flight on April 12, 1961 ushered in the era of space exploration -- and his charming smile became its symbol. Blasting into space aboard Soviet rocket Vostok One, Gagarin also blasted into the history of mankind.
He returned to Earth as an international hero, proving that a human can indeed fly to the stars. If you missed it, the UFOs appear by the International Space Station footage @5:14
