    Those Mercury astronauts, especially, had to be very brave men. Ditto the cosmonauts of the USSR during those very early days of space exploration.

    I agree with James and Molokai on the daring and brave astronauts, some of them risked their lives for science and human progress.

    Just Virgil - Gus - Grissom whose image brings Molokai - Edward White and Roger Chaffee died in a fire in the Apollo 1 of January 27, 1967-

    I have in my possession a replica of the book of flight of the Apollo 13 signed by their Commander James Lovell to scaneare soon for you to see it.

    Greetings from Argentina

    Of course, before any of the astronauts or cosmonauts, there was Leika.

    Hello Molokai, I've not seen one of these before, so it is now on my "wants" list, very nice.

    Without trying to change the topic of the thread I bring two dogs astronauts stamps; the first in Bulgaria with pets in press conference and the second well known I suppose.

    Best regards
