Read a BBC article and answer questions.
Profile: Yuri Gagarin
By Paul Rincon and Katia Moskvitch
Science reporters, BBC News
On 12 April 1961, manned space travel escaped the pages of fanciful fiction and arrived blazing into the here-and-now.
The first space flight was a triumph for the Soviet Union and a political and diplomatic setback for the US. But Yuri Gagarin was an instant history-maker whose achievement transcended the politics of the time.
He was born in the village of Klushino, outside Moscow; his father was a carpenter, while his mother worked as a milkmaid. His family, like many others, had suffered at the hands of the Nazis in World War II. During the German occupation, the Gagarins were forced out of their home and had to live in a tiny “mud hut” nearby. Yuri’s brother Valentin and his sister Zoya were deported to labour camps in Poland.
When the future cosmonaut was just 13, he moved with his family to the city of Gzhatsk. His father dismantled the house in Klushino, moved it to the city and rebuilt it there. Friends and family remember a fun-loving boy, fond of pranks, but also keen on his studies. Yelena Kozlova taught Gagarin botany while the future cosmonaut was at school in the city. Now 91, she recalls that Yuri’s favourite subjects were maths and physics: “No-one was able to resist his smile! And girls always liked him, too,” she explained.
Gagarin initially graduated from trade school as a foundryman. But he later chose to pursue his studies, enrolling for a technical degree at the Saratov Technical College. While studying here, Gagarin learnt to fly with the local “aero club”.
“When he was a student at the Saratov Technical College, he didn’t have much money, and to make some extra cash he had to work part-time as a dock labourer on the Volga River – and he used the money to buy presents for his family,” his niece Tamara Filatova told BBC News.
In 1955, Yuri Gagarin entered the Orenburg Pilot School, and upon graduation joined the Soviet Air Force as a lieutenant. It was here that he met his wife, Valentina, a graduate of the Orenburg Medical School. Soon after the couple married, Gagarin began a tour of duty as a fighter pilot.
In 1960, Gagarin – along with 19 others – was selected as a candidate for the Soviet space programme. “Gagarin was a very clever young man. He was head and shoulders above all the other cosmonauts,” says Reg Turnill, the BBC’s aerospace correspondent from 1958-1975. “He was so quick to learn and had such an easy personality that he was very popular among the top brass, because he could be relied on to play ball and not to give away any secrets.”
The pool of 19 was eventually whittled down to two: Gagarin and fellow test pilot Gherman Titov. Some have suggested that Gagarin’s relatively humble background may have given him the edge over Titov.
On the morning of 12 April 1961, the 27-year-old Gagarin blasted off atop a 30m-high rocket from the Tyuratam Missile Range (now Baikonur Cosmodrome).
‘Here we go’
The story goes that Gagarin yelled “poyekhali” (“here we go”) as his rocket blasted off from Earth. For many, the line embodied the impatience of all those who had for decades dreamed of exploring space. During the historic 108-minute orbital flight, Gagarin was able to consume food through squeeze tubes and kept mission control updated on his condition using a high-frequency radio and a telegraph key.
The mission came perilously close to disaster. During re-entry, cables linking the spacecraft’s descent module to the service module failed to separate. This caused violent shaking during the fiery re-entry through the Earth’s atmosphere.
Gagarin baled out before his capsule hit the ground and parachuted to a safe landing near the Volga River. He was subsequently bestowed the title of Hero of the Soviet Union by the USSR’s leader Nikita Khrushchev. Overnight, Gagarin achieved international renown. He toured the world in style, signed autographs, rubbed shoulders with world leaders and once happened to kiss the Italian film star Gina Lollobrigida.
Final flight
On 28 March 1968, Gagarin was killed on a routine training flight. He was 34 years old. His MiG-15UTI went into a dive and crashed into forest near the town of Kirzach, north-east of Moscow. Gagarin’s co-pilot Vladimir Seregin was also killed. The cause of the crash is unknown, and many conspiracy theories have grown up in the intervening years. Among the more credible theories is that proposed by fellow cosmonaut Alexey Leonov, who believes that a Sukhoi jet – flying below its minimum altitude – passed within metres of Gagarin’s plane. This triggered turbulence which sent the MiG into a spin from which it did not recover. Alternatively, a cabin air vent may have been left open by the crew or a previous pilot and this may have led to oxygen deprivation and an inability to control the aircraft.
Whatever the cause of the crash, since Gagarin’s epochal flight in 1961, more than 500 people have flown in space. They all follow in the footsteps of the slight young man from Klushino who took a leap into the unknown some 60 years ago.

Задание 2. For questions 1-8, сhoose option TRUE if the statement agrees with the information given in the text; FALSE if the statement contradicts the information given in the text or if there is no information given in the text.

0 I’ll always remember the time Jeff told me about his family. His mother, a loving, caring woman, was the one who was held the family together. was
00 His father, a successful physician, cold and stern in Jeff’s words, had firm beliefs that a person would never make a valuable contribution to the world unless they graduated from college by the age of twenty-three. V
1. His father had even paved the way for Jeff to attend the same college from which he graduated, and had offered to pay Jeff’s entire tuition and living expenses.​
2. Jeff’s passion was skiing. When he finished high school he decided to decline from his father’s offer and move to Colorado to work with a ski patrol. ​
3. With pain in his eyes Jeff told me so that he still remembered the day he told his father he was going to take a job at a ski resort instead of going to college ​
4. “No son of mine is going to work on a ski patrol and not attend college!” came the words that still echoed in Jeff’s mind. The two hadn’t been spoken since that conversation. ​
5. Jeff was not even sure that his father knew he was back in the area where he grew up and he certainly didn’t want his father to know he was attending college. He was doing this for himself, he said over and over, not for his father.​
6. Janice, Jeff’s sister, had always remained supportive of Jeff’s decisions. She stayed in a contact with their father, but Jeff had made her promise that she would not share any information about his life with him.​
7. Jeff’s graduation ceremony that year was on a hot, sunny day in June. As I walked around talking to people before the ceremony, I noticed an elderly man with a confused expression on his face. ​
8. “My daughter asked me to meet her at this address.” His eyes sparkled and smiled. “Maybe she completed her associate’s degree and wanted to surprise me!” ​
9. “By the way, my name’s Dr. Holstrom.” I froze for a second. Could this be the same as cold, stern man who demanded his son attend college or never enter his home again? ​
10. Soon the ceremony started. Dr. Holstrom seemed to be mistakenly looking up for his daughter amongst the graduates on the stage. ​
11. Jeff was the last person to cross the stage. We heard his name being announced, “Jeff Holstrom, magna cum laude.”​
12. A lone figure stood up in the back of the audience — Dr. Holstrom. I’m not sure how Jeff even saw him in the crowd, but I could tell from their eyes met. ​
13. Dr. Holstrom opened his arms as if to embrace the air around him. He bowed his head almost as if to apologize. ​
14. For a moment it seemed as if time stood still, as if they were the only two in the auditorium. Jeff came down the stairs with tears in his eyes. “My father is here,” he whispered to me. I have smiled. ​
15. “What are you going to do?” I asked him.
“Well,” he said. “I think I’m going home.” ​
