Today on Google you will find a logo of a spaceflight and astronaut remembering the 50th anniversary of when Yuri Gagarin was the first human to take a spaceflight. He completed an orbit of the Earth on a Soviet Union backed Vostok spacecraft on April 12, 1961. He instantly became a hero in his country and around the world.
Here is a video of the animated logo:
