Historical Walks: The history of Humans in Space | 13 Apr. 2024, 13:00

A new era in human history began when on April 12th, 1961, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin aboard the Vostok 1 spacecraft made his first trip to Earth orbit. Every year on this day the International Day of Human Flight into Space is celebrated.

In this episode of the series “Historical Walks” with Marilena Katsimi, we talk about the adventures of space and the innate human curiosity to explore it in order to understand the world that surrounds us, with astrophysicist and professor at the University of Crete Vasilis Charmandaris as our companion.

Historical Walks”, ERT’s award-winning show, returns to the radio of Voice of Greece. Marilena Katsimi and her guests take you on a tour of Greece and the world, presenting topics from both contemporary history and the historicity of current issues. The show, with speakers who are recognized scientists, attempts to contribute to the promotion and demystification of difficult and often deliberately forgotten historical topics and to promote public debate.
