FIRST ORBIT COMPETITION

FIRST ORBIT COMPETITION

108 MINUTES AROUND EARTH


FIRST ORBITApril 12th 1961 – Yuri Gagarin is about to see what no other person has seen in the history of humanity – the Earth from space. In the next 108 minutes he'll see more than most people do in a lifetime. What sights awaited the first cosmonaut silently gliding over the world below? What was it like to view the oceans and continents sailing by from such a height?

In a unique collaboration with the European Space Agency, and the Expedition 26/ 27 crew of the International Space Station, we have created a new film of what Gagarin first witnessed fifty years ago.

By matching the orbital path of the Space Station, as closely as possible, to that of Gagarin's Vostok 1 spaceship and filming the same vistas of the Earth through the new giant cupola window, astronaut Paolo Nespoli, and documentary film maker Christopher Riley, have captured a new digital high definition view of the Earth below, half a century after Gagarin first witnessed it.

Weaving these new views together with historic, recordings of Gagarin from the time, (subtitled in Englsih) and an original score by composer Philip Sheppard, we have created a spellbinding film to share with people around the world on this historic anniversary.

Watched over 3.3 million times on YouTube and screened publically at over 1600 venues in more than 130 countries, First Orbit has now been translated by the fans into more than 30 languages. And through a crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo we've now released a multi-language version of the film on DVD and Blu-ray, which you can buy from here.

For the movie release on DVD and Blue-ray on April 12 2012 SPACE TRAVELLERS in collaboration with 'The Attic Room' we raffle 5 DVD's signed from producer Christopher Riley ("Space Odyssey", "When we left Earth - NASA Missions" - "In the Shadow of the Moon ").

To increase your chances of getting the DVD's, you need only answer one question:

What was the name of Yuri Gagarin's spacecraft, with which he flew into space on April 12 1961 and orbited Earth once?

Send us an e-mail to info@space-affairs.com with your e-mail address and your answer. The competition runs from 08/04/2012 until 01.05.2012 0:00. You don't have to send us other personal contact details with your answer. We will contact the winners via email and after getting your shipping address, we will send to you the DVD. Employees of participating companies are excluded from participation in the Sweepstakes. A payout of prizes is not possible. You do not have to request to participate on this competition about our special services.

Of course you can purchase the DVD or Blue-Ray also here: http://www.firstorbit.org.
