Yuri Gagarin (Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин)

Today is the 50th anniversary of the first man in space. That man is Yuri Gagarin or in Russian Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин.
He was the first human being to journey into outer space, when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on April 12, 1961.
Minus the 's' and we have the exact same first name.
