Soviet space race Christmas Tree decorations from the 1950s and 1960s
Love these Soviet sputnik-shaped glass Christmas tree decorations from the 1950s and 1960s.
You can match them with the Gagarin Vostok tree hanger below. (The first human spaceflight in history was accomplished on this spacecraft on April 12, 1961, by Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.)
And don’t forget Laika – the first dog that had visited space. (via)
