CANADA IN SPACE
- Cmdr. Chris Hadfield, Canadian astronaut and recent commander of the Space Station, is back on Earth after stepping out of a Russian Soyuz spacecraft in Kazakhstan on Monday. He was in space for five months.
- Don't forget the CanadArm, which was developed by Canada and is vital to space exploration.
USA SPACE PROGRAM
- Too bad the US has abandoned most of its space program. A
country can't wage a war and have a space program, too.
1965 USA National Aeronautics and Space Administration
- There were some tragic events in USA space history, not the least of which was the fire in the cockpit of Apollo 1 on Jan. 27, 1967,when three of the first group of NASA astronauts - Virgil (Gus) Grissom, Edward White and Roger Chaffee - died during a routine ground test of the Apollo capsule, and of course, the explosion of space shuttle Challenger which killed a teacher and all on board in 1986. In 2003 the Columbia broke apart, killing all astronauts on board, including an Israeli astronaut.
- Israeli astronaut killed as well as entire crew in 2003.
RUSSIAN TRIUMPHS AND TRAGEDIES
- Russia, too, has had its space catastrophes, perhaps not so
- In April of 1961, a Russian named Yuri
Gagarin became the first man to orbit Earth.
- In April of 1961, a Russian named Yuri Gagarin became the first man to orbit Earth.
- Russian astronauts shot
around the moon in 1967 and attempted to land on the moon before the well known American moon landing in 1969.
- The Russian landing before the Americans got there in 1969 didn't come about, after several failures, although there are stories to the contrary.
INDIA AND CHINA SPACE PROGRAMS
- India and China have their space programs, as well as many other countries such as Britain, North Korea, and Iran, less publicized in the USA.
