On the 12th April 1961 Yuri Gagarin climbed into his spaceship and was launched into space. It took him just over 100 minutes to orbit Earth and he returned as the World's very first spaceman. He didn't have an iPhone to capture what he saw to share with the world, so fifty years on we have gone back and filmed it all again for you to enjoy. You can find out how we did it and watch the full length free film at www.firstorbit.org

But if you want to experience a speedier view of what Yuri witnessed on his pioneering flight then this is the app for you! We've condensed our new view into 100 seconds - which is the equivalent of orbiting the Earth at over 1 million miles an hour!

There's also an interactive Earth globe so you can trace the exact route which Yuri took fifty years ago.
