History of Spacism: Tsiolkovsky, Gagarin, Ashurbeyli ¶
Tsiolkovsky was the first man interested with spacism as a real-concrete subject, not as a science fiction theme. He wrote about human being in the space. He was a scientist.
Gagarin was the first man went to the space. He wrote ‘Space and Psychology’ with first hand experience.
Ashurbeyli is the first man founded the first space nation state.
All 3 are Russians.
Tsiolkovsky lived in tschar period, Gagarin lived in USSR period, Ashurbeyli lived his middle age in liberal Russia.
Tschar period Russia was not even a 3rd World, USSR period Russia was 2nd World against USA, Russia is 1st World as in G-8.
First country gone to space (USSR) was a result of WW1, third country gone to space (China) was a result of WW2.
A process in a longer period than a century.
An interesting comparing and contrasting result for 'human in space' history.
