Bad day=trivia break. It's just a little easier for me than trying to do justice to the excellent questions I get. In the interest of space, since I know a few space enthusiasts read this, here are some "manned" or "pre-manned" space firsts.
So, using my new method, I ask you first and tomorrow, I expand on the answers I might get today.
Ready? (My preference on these is to get animal/astronaut(s), flight, year on these answers but I'll settle for anything ya got.)
What was the first animal in space?
What happened to the first animal to orbit the earth?
Who was the first man in space?
Who was the first man to orbit the earth?
Who was the first woman in space?
Who performed the first EVA in space?
Who were the first people to orbit the moon?
Who was in the command module when Armstrong and Aldrin first walked on the moon?
Who was/were the first people killed in space?
That ought to keep you busy.
