Yuri Gagarin onboard Vostok 1

Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin in the cabin of Vostok 1, the spacecraft in which he became the first person to orbit the Earth on April 12, 1961. Gagarin's flight lasted 108 minutes, and he made one complete revolution round the Earth, landing safely only six miles from the calculated point. Gagarin was killed while testing an aircraft on March 27, 1968

Manned maneuvring unit space walk, 1984 Featured April Print

Manned maneuvring unit space walk, 1984

Manned maneuvring unit space walk, 1984. Astronaut Bruce McCandless floats free above the Earth in his manned manoeuvring unit (MMU) on 7th February 1984, during the 10th space shuttle flight (mission 41B). McCandless, who helped design the MMU, was the first person to fly it, thus becoming the first "human satellite" in orbit around the Earth. The MMU is propelled by small nitrogen thrusters which are controlled by the astronaut's hands. Because no umbilical cord attaches the astronaut to the spacecraft, it gives much greater mobility than was available to earlier spacewalkers. Mission 41B was launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) on 3rd February 1984, and landed back at KSC on 12th February

SEM of the bird cherry aphid Featured April Print

SEM of the bird cherry aphid

Scanning electron micrograph, tinted green, of the bird cherry aphid, Rhopalosiphum padi (also known as Aphis avenae), next to its recently cast off exoskeleton. It is seen feeding on barley (Hordeum vulgare). The exoskeleton is made of inelastic chitin which is shed 5 times before adulthood to allow growth. This species is an economic pest, transmitting two viral diseases, yellow dwarf virus & maize leaf fleck virus, which infect crops such as oats, barley, wheat & maize. Transmission occurs when the aphid inserts its proboscis & feeds on sugar stored in the leaves (as here). Large infestations cause the leaves of a plant to wilt & fall. Magnification: X 14 at 35mm size. Original is BW print Z295/048
