I remember him well, I followed the space race avidly, I suppose the Cosmonauts and Astronauts were the celebrities of the 60's and 70's

My favourite was Laike
Laika was the first dog in space launched 3rd November 1957. The mission did not go to plan, the cooling system failed and Laika cooked.
I followed the space race during the late 50s until the middle 70s before all interest was lost. There were many benefits to the space programme all paid for in human life.

Re: First Person to Walk in Space Dies at 85

They were all very brave people , i lived and breathed the space race , my dad was horrified i celebrated the " commie " achievements , as he was a die hard patriot . And to him it detracted from America's pioneer spirit . Little realising it was all based on Nazi German rocket science , scientists and engineering principles .
