In 1961 Yuri Gagarin was said to have used his ejector seat to exit the Soyuz spacecraft returning to Earth, however, even now (2017) astronauts and cosmonauts remain inside their Russian return vehicles. Gagarin was said to have parachuted out of the Soyuz return module in 1961 and landed more than 100 kilometers away from the space craft. Yet since then every re-entry has seen the cosmonauts and now including astronauts remain in the Soyuz until touchdown. What does that mean? It shows that the Gagarin flight was a hoax.
