April 12, 1961 – Yuri Gagarin is about to do what no other person has seen in the history of humanity – Earth from space.

Over the next 108 minutes you will see that most people in life. What places the first cosmonaut waited silently gliding over the world below? How does it feel to see the oceans and continents sailing from such a height?

In a unique collaboration with the European Space Agency, and the crew of Expedition 26/27 International Space Station, this film shows what Gagarin first witness of the past fifty years.

By matching the orbital path of the Space Station, to the extent possible, the Gagarin’s Vostok spacecraft and shooting the same view of the Earth through the new giant dome window, astronaut Paolo Nespoli, and documentary filmmaker Christopher Riley, have captured a new view high-definition digital Earth below half a century after Gagarin’s first witness.

Weave these new viewpoints, along with historical recordings of the time Gagarin (with Englsih subtitles) and an original score by composer Philip Sheppard, this is a fascinating movie to share with people around the world in this historic anniversary.
