On April 12, 1961, the Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, on the Vostok-1 spacecraft, launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome and made the first orbit flight around the planet Earth. Near-Earth space flight lasted 1 hour 48 minutes.

In the Soviet Union, the holiday was established by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of April 9, 1962. Celebrated under the name Cosmonautics Day. This holiday was established at the proposal of the second Pilot-Cosmonaut of the USSR German Titov, who applied to the Central Committee of the CPSU with a corresponding proposal on March 26, 1962.

On the same day, World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day is celebrated in accordance with the protocol (paragraph 17) of the 61st General Conference of the International Aviation Federation, held in November 1968 and the decision of the Council of the International Aviation Federation, adopted on April 30, 1969 on the proposal of the USSR Aviation Sports Federation.
