Comments

The space age began on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union launched the world first artificial Earth satellite. Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first man to fly into the space on April 12, 1961, and American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin were the first men to land on the Moon on June 21, 1969. By 1992 some 4000 spacecrafts have been launched and more than 1,000 manned flights have been made. The United Nations declared 1992 the International Space Year.
