Merge[edit]

I suspect Talk:List of space exploration milestones, 1957-1969 has more page watchers, so discussion can take place there. Marskell 12:41, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

All inclusive or following somebody's idea of what's is worth it or not ?[edit]

If it's all inclusive...

Where have you guys been all your life ?  ;-p

"On that glorious day in May, 1963, Gordo Cooper went higher, farther, and faster than any other American... ...And for a brief moment, Gordo Cooper became the greatest pilot anyone had ever seen." The Right Stuff ~02:27:30

May 15 - L. Gordon Cooper spends 34 hours in space. He is the last American to fly in space alone. http://www.thespacerace.com/timeline/

Cooper was launched into space on May 15, 1963, aboard the Mercury-Atlas 9 (Faith 7) spacecraft, the last Mercury mission. He orbited the Earth 22 times and logged more time in space than all five previous Mercury astronauts combined—34 hours, 19 minutes and 49 seconds—traveling 546,167 miles (878,971 km) at 17,547 mph (28,239 km/h), pulling a maximum of 7.6 g (74.48 m/s²). Cooper achieved an altitude of 165.9 statute miles (267 km) at apogee. He was the first American astronaut to sleep not only in orbit but on the launch pad during a countdown. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Cooper#Mercury_Seven
