The goal of the Vostok program was to put the first Soviet citizens into low Earth orbit and return them safely back to Earth. In direct competition with NASA's Project Mercury, this period of exciting technical progress became known as the "Space Race"...
This is the story of Yuri Gagarin, a cosmonaut born in the Soviet Union. He was the first human to journey into outer space!
With this historical questline we learned about Yuri Gagarin's role in the USA-USSR space competition and how the "Space Race" resulted in putting the first human in an orbit around our planet. From April 8th to April 15th, 2016, players were able to go through a quest line that will allow them to relive this achievement.
For those successful in completing all the quests in time, the rewards included a unique portrait of Yuri Gagarin (featuring his space suit!), a Victory Tower, and an Astronaut Statue for their city.
