About the Poster

Glory to the Soviet People, the Pioneers of Space! (Russian: Советскому народу пионеру космоса, СЛАВА!) is a 1962 Soviet propaganda poster by Vadim Volikov (Russian: Вадим Воликов) that celebrates the early explorers of outer space.

In the background of the poster you can see four space shuttles soaring through the heavens:

  • Vostok 1 (1961): pilot, Yuri Gagarin, became the first man to enter space and orbit the earth 
  • Vostok 2 (1961): pilot, Gherman Titov, became the fourth person in space, the second to orbit the moon, and the first to spend a full day in space
  • Vostok 3 and Vostok 4 (1962): pilots, Andriyan Nikolayev and Pavel Popovich, served in the first simultaneous flight of two crewed missions

After the publication of this poster, there would be two more Vostok missions. Vostok 5 (1963) took Valery Bykovsky to space, and Vostok 6 (1963) took Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. In a nice romantic turn, Valentina Tereshkova and Andriyan Nikolayev would marry after her return to earth.
