Artificial Satellites SPUTNIK the 1st artificial satellite to orbit the Earth Animals used 1st in space travel. LAIKA the dog As little was known about the impact of spaceflight on living creatures at

the time of Laika's mission, and the technology to de-orbit had not yet been developed, there was no expectation of Laika's survival. Some scientists believed humans would be unable to survive the launch or the conditions of outer space, so engineers viewed flights by animals as a necessary precursor to human missions.

On January 31, 1961, Ham was secured in a Project Mercury mission labeled MR-2 and launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on a suborbital flight.[6]:314-315 Ham had his vital signs and tasks monitored using computers on Earth.[7] The capsule suffered a partial loss of pressure during the flight, but Ham's space suit prevented him

from suffering any harm.[6]:315 Ham's lever-pushing performance in space was only a fraction of a second slower than on Earth, demonstrating that tasks could be performed in space.[6]:316 Ham's capsule splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean and was recovered by a rescue ship later that day. [6] :316 He only suffered a bruised

nose.[7] His flight was 16 minutes and 39 seconds long First Human in Space- Yuri Gagarin Video Footage Alan Shepard- First American in Space

Space Station: Hubble Telescope The Hubble Space Telescope is a large telescope in space. It was launched by NASA in 1990. Hubble is the length of a large school bus. It weighs as much as two adult elephants. Hubble travels around Earth at about 5 miles per second. Hubble faces toward space. It takes pictures of planets, stars and galaxies. Hubble has seen the birth and death of stars. It has seen galaxies that are billions of light years away. Hubble has also seen comet pieces crash into the atmosphere above Jupiter. Scientists have learned a lot about space

from Hubble pictures. The pictures are beautiful to look at, too. Now what?!? The Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program began in 2006 with the purpose of creating commercially operated unmanned cargo vehicles to service the ISS. The first of these vehicles, SpaceX's Dragon, became operational in 2012, and the second, Orbital Sciences' Cygnus, is expected to do so in 2013.[25]

The Commercial Crew Development (CCDev) program was initiated in 2010 with the purpose of creating commercially operated manned spacecraft capable of delivering at least four crew members to the ISS, staying docked for 180 days and then returning them back to Earth. These spacecraft are expected to become operational around 2017. Sources: Mercury+capsule.jpg 4F32AD3138 Sources: ollo_15_Lunar_Rover_final_resting_place.jpg A55A1E4F32AD3138 g
