20-meter giant balloon "Time of the First" in the shape of an astronaut in a spacesuit launched into the sky over Moscow on April 12, 2017, Cosmonautics Day. The big-budget space exploration movie Vremya Pervykh (Time of the First) by Timur Bekmambetov’s company Bazelevs was released in Russia in 2017 to the current 56th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space. The unique aerostat in height of a six-story house cast to the film company 3,5 million rubles (about 62.500 USD). The design of the balloon was developed on the basis of drawings and photographs of the original spacesuit "Berkut" (Golden Eagle), in which cosmonaut Alexei Leonov made the first exit into outer space on March 18, 1965, and the just released movie tells about this great event. CCCP (USSR) in bright red letters was painted on its white helmet.
