50 years anniversary of the first man in space - Yuri Gagarin was widely celebrated in Russia on 12 April 2011.

Thanks to Nikita Kuprikov from Moscow Aviation Institute and Alexey Pavlov from Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, a small copy of the rocket "Vostok" with APECS logo onboard was launched from the Barneo Ice Camp in close proximity to the North Pole.
