Распарина Ольга Владимировна. МОУ «Гимназия №1» г. Саратова. Я — ученица 10 физико-математического класса. Мне хочется рассказать о пребывании Юрия Алексеевича Гагарина в Саратове.

Saratov is a unique city: the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin not only lived, studied and then first flew in the air in this city. He also landed his rocket nearby after his great flight.
After studying for one year at a vocational technical school in Lyubertsy, Gagarin continued his studies at the industrial college in Saratov. In 1955 Gagarin joined the Saratov Flying Club and won his wings, learning to fly in the Yak-18. All in all Yuri Gagarin has executed 196 flights and flew 42 hours and 23 minutes.
In his spare time Yuri Gagarin visited theatres and museums, walked in the parks. He liked sports and was the captain of the basketball team.
In spring 1955 he had to prepare a thesis in order to graduate. His problem was to design a foundry capable of producing 9,000 tons (metric) of castings a year. The state examining committee accepted his thesis, and he received his diploma.
In April 1961, aboard “Vostok 1”, he became the first human to travel into space. The spacecraft orbited Earth once in 1 hour 29 minutes and landed safely in a field near Saratov.
Residents of Saratov cherish the memory of the first cosmonaut. He is a real man for them, admired and respected, “the guy from our city”.
Y.A. Gagarin’s museum at the industrial college in Saratov is the first museum which was opened during his lifetime in 1965. Today the museum has unique documents, photographs, books and movies depicting Saratov’s period in the life of Yuri Gagarin.
There is a bronze monument to the first cosmonaut standing on the quay and looking at the Volga. At the landing site one can see a high obelisk.
In his auto-biographical book “The Road to Space” Gagarin warmly told about the years spent in Saratov, about his study and the first steps in aviation.
