It won't have escaped your notice that today marks the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's historic first manned space flight.

Well, we at the Paper Aircraft Released Into Space (PARIS) bureau couldn't let the moment pass without some form of celebration, and our own heroic Playmonaut was on hand offer a hearty "За здоровье!"

In case you're wondering, I picked up the magnificent Gagarin commemorative space pen holder years ago on a trip to the then Soviet Union, and have been regularly dusting it in preparation for just such a moment. ®
