Just a small detail, what is the definition of West Europe? For example, if you include (todays) Germany, then he is no longer the first West European in space. On the other hand, East Germany is probably not in West Europe. Maybe there is a better definition? But the current one also seems fine. Isomorphismus (talk) 11:54, 3 February 2013 (UTC) Also worth asking, why is he considered the first West European? Are we going by citizenship or ethnicity? Plenty of ethnic Western Europeans went up for the American space program - if an ethnic Malay went up as an American citizen, you can be sure we'd be listing him as the "First Malay in Space" even though in articles like this one we appear to be classifying people via citizenship. Need to standardize there a bit.
