"SU": Official planning of a new atmosphere flight with Yuri Gagarin
(also: Juri, Uri oder Urey Gagarin)
Yuri Gagarin, portrait of a parachute jumper.
Just one day after the failure of the Ilyushin mission the regime at Moscow made a quick decision to promote the pilot Yuri Gagarin for a "space flight". Gagarin was only in the background until that time.
The time between announcement on 8th April 1961 and the realization on 12th April 1961 seems to be very short and unreal. There seems having been prepared something already before (Wisnewski, p.26).
An Gagarin is rising like a phoenix (Wisnewski, p.36).
Gagarin is a farmer's son, suffered the NS occupation, then became a manufacturer (Wisnewski, p.40), then he was a worker in a foundry, later he joined a flight club of Saratov where he never was photographed as a pilot but as a cleaner cleaning in the club (Wisnewski, p.37).
At the end of the summer 1955 Gagarin became a pupil of the pilot's education school at Orenbourg [in the region of Samara in Russia] and finished the school in 1957 with a diploma as "First Class Pilot". Since 1957 he is member of the "Soviet" air force and served there as as fight pilot. When he was displaced to Orenbourg he got to know his wife. Because of his lacking body height he always had problems in the MiG airplanes and had to use a cushion. In November 1957 he married and Gagarin was promoted as a lieutenant. At the end of 1959 Gagarin brought forward a motion to be admitted in the cosmonaut group. He had to pass all medical tests and is admitted.
All in all Gagarin only had 340 flying hours, and only 75 as a jet pilot. With this balance Gagarin is a foreign body in the whole cosmonaut group. All cosmonaut colleagues have over 1,500 jet flying hours, "American" astronauts have an average of over 5,000 jet flying hours (Wisnewski, p.39).
When Gagarin begins the cosmonaut training in March 1960 he only has passed five parachute jumps (Wisnewski, p.38-39). For a parachute exam in Germany one has to show 30 successful jumps (Wisnewski, p.39). So, there is the suspicion that Gagarin was chosen for Communist propaganda as an identification figure for the masses. This simple man as a first man in the atmosphere should make believe the Communist trained masses that there is no doubt about atmosphere flight (Wisnewski, p.40).
12 April 1961:
The alleged atmosphere flight of Yuri Gagarin with a safe return - [mission "Vostok 1"]
Alleged Gagarin Earth orbit "mission Vostok 1",
map with flight path
9:07 (Moscow time)
Alleged [secret] liftoff of a Vostok atmosphere ship ("space ship") with Gagarin from Tjuratam (later Baikonur) Wisnewski, p.49).
Only now the "SU" reports to the world the alleged Gagarin atmosphere flight and indicates the frequencies of the radio communication so all radio amateur operators can listen what is spoken in the atmosphere ship. The frequencies are 9,019 and 20,006 megahertz. As it seems the "SU" regime was afraid of the start, but it's strange that the "SU" leadership is not afraid of the landing, otherwise the flight would be kept secret until the "astronaut" had landed (Wisnewski, p.49).
Gagarin's flight officially ends almost with a tragedy. During leaving the orbit at the beginning of the approach the capsule is said not having separated from the booster rocket by some unknown reason. After several unsuccessful attempts the landing capsule is said having separated, with 10 minutes delay. Gagarin is said having landed in a remote region far away from the rescue team. But officially the mission is presented to the media as a success. Gagarin's flight attracts the whole attention of the whole world and covers Ilyushin's emergency landing in China.
[Since this moment Gagarin is for the media the first astronaut of a "first successful manned space flight"...]
The day of Gagarin's alleged high atmosphere flight ("space flight")
Headlines about Gagarin in the "USA": They all believe that he was in space, without one single foto of the "space flight". Gagarin is dressed in a parachute jumping suit.
Headlines about Gagarin's alleged atmosphere flight, e.g. the report of Huntsville Times from 12th April 1961.
Contradictions at the alleged landing of Gagarin

(from: Beverhoudt: http://www.sandcastlevi.com/space/vtok-pic.htm)
The fotos are partly this blurred that there can be recognized hardly anything, e.g. on the foto of astronautix:
Gagarin's alleged landing capsule on a meadow, blurred foto of astronautix.com.
Regularly also the following foto is presented as Gagarin's landing capsule:

So, which foto is right? Something must be wrong here.

(Foto from: Taking the first picture of Gagarin after Landing; http://vlad.tribnet.com/2001/ISS256/News/News01.HTM)
[The foto on the right is from a website from Anatoly Pekarsky. Anatoly Lugansky from Vladivostok is said having taken the foto. Lugansky claims this would be the first foto after Gagarin's landing.
-- where is the helmet?
-- where is the astronaut suit?
-- and where is the background?
That does not work].
The contradictions about the Gagarin flight
Wisnewski: Gagarin has probably performed a parachute jump from an airplane
The alleged Gagarin flight is full of contradictions (Wisnewski, p.41). There is a strong suspicion that Gagarin has jumped as a parachute jumper from an airplane so the "SU" propaganda could at least present a successful atmosphere flight of a healthy human with one orbit to prove the "predominance" against "USA".
(In: Istvan Nemeve: Gagarin - eine kosmische Lüge?; In: Wisnewski, p.36).
[This also would declare why an "SU" astronaut has to land with an ejection seat and with a parachute. According to later claims Gagarin is said having landed in the site of his flight club of Saratov. By this there is the strong suspicion that the Gagarin flight was a normal parachute jump from an airplane of the flight club].
Not one single foto from the alleged Gagarin flight itself
The fotos with Gagarin in a space suit in a capsule are all arranged fotos (Wisnewski, p.40).
From the start there is no film recording available. This is very strange why the "SU" propaganda did not film of the liftoff of the "first man in space" (Wisnewski, p.42).
According to Wisnewski
-- the most written material of the alleged Gagarin flight is compiled only after the alleged flight
-- the pictures are compiled only some years after the alleged flight
-- and there are no proofs for the Gagarin flight (Wisnewski, p.42).
[There is even another stronger suspicion: That Gagarin was waiting in the cellar of a neighbour town and not even performed a parachute jump. He had to wait the point of time, the "SU" regime got him at the right time and let him be a space hero. Because there is no foto of a landing of Gagarin in an astronaut suit or on a parachute].
The radio communication - the suspicion that it was a tape
A tape recorder on board of the alleged Gagarin atmosphere ship
According to Wisnewski Gagarin was not on board of the atmosphere ship but a tape recorder (Wisnewski, p.49). A tape cannot pass out. That's why that the flight and the tone frequencies were announced to the public one hour after liftoff already (Wisnewski, p.50).
The alleged radio communication of Gagarin is absolutely general and could really be from a tape:
"I see the Earth. Wonderful!"
then: "All is swimming. All is swimming! Wonderful!"
then: "[I] watch the Earth. Good sight. [I] can hear you very well!"
Details how the Earth looks like from above are not mentioned, e.g. which parts of the Earth is in the night or in the daylight etc.
Then: "A certain region is covered with cumulus clouds."
This can be everywhere so the suspicion of a prefabricated tape of the secret service is stronger and stronger (Wisnewski, p.50).
About the space ship Gagarin does allegedly say not one single word. Gagarin maintains several times all would be "normal": "Continue the flight. All normal." (Wisnewski, p.50)
Torre Bert: The alleged Gagarin radio communication of the Cordiglia brothers - the wrong geography about "America"
The alleged radio communication of Gagarin is also recorded by the Judicia-Cordiglia brothers (Wisnewski, p.50). For example:
"I continue the flight ... wonderful sight ... the Earth is blue." (Wisnewski, p.52)
At 9:57 Moscow time [so 7:57 MET, 6:57 London Time WET] Gagarin allegedly claims:
"I am over America."
And this local indication is absolutely wrong: According to the flight path the atmosphere ship was over the Pacific at this time (Wisnewski, p.51-52). This also confirms the Swedish "space expert" Sven Grahn in his diagram.
Gagarin is said having been called with the code name "Kedr" (English: cedar) during his alleged flight.
from: Sven Grahn: http://www.svengrahn.pp.se/histind/Vostok1/Vostok1X.htm
The most important radio communication during the alleged Gagarin flight with the indication "America" instead of "Pacific" according to the diagram of Sven Grahn, map.
[Conclusion: Gagarin never had said to be over "America"
So, Gagarin is said he had claimed he was over "America" when he was over the Pacific. But it's not probable that Gagarin as an astronaut makes such a mistake because he was not only over the sea but also over the other side of the planet over the southern hemisphere on the position of Chile.
It can be admitted that Gagarin knew the flight path when he had been in the atmosphere ship. The claim that the atmosphere ship flew over "America" seems to be a normal propaganda against the "USA". The thesis of Wisnewski that in the atmosphere ship had been a tape seems to be not improbable.
Grahn even claims on the map that the TV had recorded Gagarin in the space capsule. But there is missing any TV film about the alleged flight otherwise this film would be in the Internet as a proof and all questions about Gagarin would be cleared. But they are not cleared...]
"SU": The "SU" regime stylizes Gagarin to a hero
Since the alleged Gagarin flight the "SU" is the best state of the world for all "Soviet" citizens. The national pride increases with a jump (Wisnewski, p.55).
Gagarin's triumphal reception in Moscow
Now the "Soviet" regime is presenting all propaganda measures:
-- there are presented huge fotos from Gagarin, but never as astronaut, but on a first picture as a major and on a second picture as a parachute jumper from the flight club Saratov
-- as it seems there is not one single foto from Gagarin as an astronaut (Wisnewski, p.42)
-- the reception is organized with a red carpet, with secretary general Nikita Khrushchev, and this reception is better documented as the alleged Gagarin flight which is never documented with Gagarin itself
-- Gagarin and Khrushchev are in a car at the top of a car convoy driving to the Kremlin, with 1,000s of waving onlookers and confetti is ejected from helicopters (Wisnewski, p.55),
and Gagarin is hugged and cheered, visible for the whole world (Wisnewski, p.57).

"USA": The alleged second space defeat in series against the "SU" after Sputnik shock
The pictures from the "Soviet" triumph are spread over the whole world and are a signal like a bomb. For the "USA" it seems to be the absolute defeat, a "Pearl Harbor of space flight", after the Sputnik shock the second time in series (Wisnewski, p.55).
With the claim of the Gagarin flight a threat of "Soviet" SS-6 booster rockets is coming along. The "Soviet" intercontinental rockets are assembled with atomic bombs and can reach other parts of the Earth. This threat becomes more earnest with every successful flight (Wisnewski, p.56).
[At the same time "USA" has rockets against "SU" in Turkey which can reach Moscow and Turkey's military forces are also playing along the game...].
14 April 1961
"USA": Congress hearing about the space program
There are plans presented for an alleged moon program. For "USA" Gagarin just came at the right time (Wisnewski, p.58).
15 April 1961
"SU": Press conference with Gagarin - no fotos from the "first successful manned flight in space"
Gagarin's performance after his alleged landing before the international press is more than embarrassing: Gagarin is reading his sentences from a piece of paper to describe his alleged experience (In: Raumfahrt-Journal 2/91, S.44; Wisnewski, S.52).
"My flight on 12 April 1961 was the first manned space flight of world history." (Wisnewski, p.29)
-- the "SU" has no fotos from Gagarin as an astronaut
-- Gagarin claims there was "not one single foto camera and not one single photographic device" on board of the atmosphere capsule
-- Gagarin claims there are no fotos and by this there is also nothing to publish (Wisnewski, p.42).
This procedure is absolutely unbelievable. There is a world sensation without any foto. The rockets and the atmosphere ship cost billions of Ruble and there shall be not one single foto (Wisnewski, p.42). A film camera on board of the Gagarin flight shall have been "forgotten" to install (Wisnewski, p.47).
The cameras in the atmosphere ship "Vostok 3" - "forgotten" to install for the Gagarin flight?

The circumstances of the alleged Gagarin landing are kept secret
Gagarin is not saying anything about details of his alleged flight. Instead him the president of the "Soviet" Academy of Science, Nesmeianov, gives a detailed description of the alleged Gagarin flight (Wisnewski, p.52).
But in China Gagarin is not well treated. The state's propaganda of China treats Gagarin as he would be a nothing (Wisnewski, p.34).
[Perhaps Ilyushin gave indications about the truth in the "SU" atmosphere flight to the Chinese secret service. Speculations can go on...].
The circumstances of the alleged Gagarin landing are kept secret for a long time. The facts indicate all a normal parachute jump:
-- Gagarin landed on the site of his old flight club at Saratov where he had trained the landing before
-- some kilometers far from him is said having landed the capsule
(In: ZDF 24 Jan 2001: Juri Gagarin. Held der Sterne [Yuri Gagarin. Hero of the stars]; Wisnewski, p.53)
But the capsules of later flights are coming down 1,000s of km from the landing point of the cosmonaut. So, also by this fact the Gagarin flight seems to be manipulated. Gagarin performed a parachute jump, and the capsule had been dropped from the same airplane probably (Wisnewski, p.53)
[or even more clever: One has brought an atmosphere capsule to the point some km aside the flight club's site].
According to the regulations of the International Air Flight Organization FAI a "space flight" is not perfect when it ends with a parachute jump. The recognition as a "space flight" swindled by secrecy of all data [and by the help of the mass media] (Wisnewski, p.53).
Later since ca. 1963 Gagarin fotos and fotos from three different rockets are handed in later. By this Gagarin could have performed his alleged "space flight" with three different rockets... (Wisnewski, p.48)
