A few days ago I wrote about Gagarins exuberant personality- perhaps why he likely was chosen over a competitor. He was pretty interesting guy- though so sad he had to die at age 34. I put a few choice links on my blog- with some choice quotes he gave. Though he was only 5'2" he coulda been a great politician if he wanted to be (in a reformed USSR).
