50 years, 25 years, 5 years, 1 year...

Maybe you have been surprised today by the image of the google heading. Today's doodle is a tribute to something that happened 50 years ago. And it inspired my post!

50 years ago, Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин (Yuri Alekséyevich Gagarin) became part of History as the first Cosmonaut when he became the first man reaching Outer Space, on board of the Vostok 1 spacecraft.

25 years ago, in April 1986, EGEE celebrates the first Agora in Munchen. Surprisingly, it was also in April'86 when the Chernobyl disaster happened (April 26) and when the US launched an attack in Tripoli and Benghazi (April 15). Sounds familiar to me...

5 years ago, in April 2006, Dennis Tito becomes the first space tourist on board of the Soyuz TM-32. Apart from it, The Netherlands sees for the first time same-sex couples to get married legally. In Agora Warszawa, some participants spent the night in the parking of the university.

1 year ago, the volcano Eyjafjallajökull erupted violently and launched a dense cloud of ashes into European sky... you all know the story, right?

In 2 weeks: Spring Agora Alicante begins!
