It's called Yuri's Night, you ungrateful Polack.
How dare you have the audacity to demand my deposition. I've never even heard of you.

Yuri went into space, he just didn't achieve orbit. Poor Mr Gagarin was much a pawn as any of us.

You've consistently failed to understand the differences between the various sections of the forum. It has been readily evident to every member. You make endless attempts to corrupt the forum and to degrade the vital differences between the sections. You are the corruptinator.

The plane crash was an obvious silencing and cover up job.

That Ruskie was about to spill the beans.

You're wrong, he did one orbit.
Since he did not actually land with his capsule, technically it should not count as a record.

Every year as the anniversary of the first human spaceflight approaches, I receive calls inquiring about the validity of Yuri Gagarin?s claim as the first human in space.  The legitimate questions focus on the fact that Gagarin did not land inside his spacecraft.  The reasoning goes that since he did not land inside his spacecraft, he disqualified himself from the record books.

Those rules existed before Gagarin's flight.

Incorrect. The conditions of the space race were satisfied.

Nope.  From the same article:
Quote
The F?d?ration A?ronautique Internationale (FAI) is the world?s air sports federation.  It was founded in 1905 as a non-governmental and non-profit making international organization to further aeronautical and astronautical activities worldwide.  Among its duties, the FAI certifies and registers records.  Its first records in aviation date back to 1906.  The organization also arbitrates disputes over records.  If nationals from two different countries claim a record, it is the FAI?s job to examine the submitted documentation and make a ruling as to who has accomplished the feat first.  When it was apparent that the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics were planning to launch men into space, the FAI specified spaceflight guidelines. One of the stipulations that the FAI carried over from aviation was that spacecraft pilots, like aircraft pilots should land inside their craft in order for the record to be valid.  In the case of aviation, this made perfect sense.  No one wanted to encourage pilots to sacrifice themselves for an aviation record.  Piloting an aircraft that could not land did nothing to further aeronautical engineering.

Oh, so we're talking about air sports. I think it's safe to assume that no one gives a shit about the FAI.

No, I don't think that's a safe assumption.
