“Mythos Gagarin – Warum fliegt der Mensch ins Weltall?”
Radio feature with Matthias Schwartz a.o.
60 years ago, on 12 Apr 1961, the Soviet Union sent a 20 million hp rocket into the sky. At the top sat Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space. His near-Earth flight opened the way to infinite space. What is Gagarin’s legacy? Michael Köhler discusses with Prof. Dr. Lisa Gotto (media studies, University of Vienna), Prof. Dr. Stephan Hobe (Director of the Institute for Space Law, University of Cologne) and Dr. Matthias Schwartz (ZfL).
