Carmen Sandiego Wiki

"Star City, we have problem. It seems the rocket has experienced some tampering. Liftoff postponed until further notice."
―Yuri Gagarin

Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (March 9, 1934 – March 27, 1968) was a Russian Soviet pilot and cosmonaut. He was the first human to journey into outer space, when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on April 12, 1961.


The player helps Yuri out by running a flight simulation on Mission Control's computer. Once the sequence is in the correct order, the player has to retrieve the Chronoskimmer before the Vostok I blasts off.

During the final chase in the game, Yuri is one of the characters who has encountered Carmen Sandiego.
