Featured Facts

Astronauts have been called the sailors of the stars.  For as long as people have gazed up into the heavens, they have dreamed of traveling in space.  

In 1961, the first people journeyed from Earth’s atmosphere into outer space.  The space race between the United States and the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) was on.

The following list offers “firsts” in terms of space travel:

  • First man in space:  Yuri Gagarin (USSR), 1961.
  • First American in space:  Alan Shepard, 1961.
  • First to orbit Earth:  John Glenn (USA), 1962.
  • First woman in space:  Valentina Tereshkova (USSR), 1963.
  • First walk in space:  Alexei Leonov (USSR), 1965.
  • First to orbit the Moon:  Frank Borman, James Lovell, William Anders (USA), 1968.
  • First walk on the Moon:  Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin (USA), 1969.
  • First American woman in space:  Sally Ride, 1983.

Answer to Brain Teaser Question


A helmet is worn on the head to protect the head, just as a thimble is worn on a finger to protect the finger.

  1. Good brain teaser and I actually got it! And the facts about men in space is fascinating. My sister works for NASA in FL and sends me photos of the launches. It’s amazing how man can go into space, see the wonder that is earth below them and still manage to deny the existence of a Creator.

    • Vickie, thanks for sharing back. Your sister has quite a career with NASA. When I look into the vastness of space, my eyes strain to see deeper into the universe. In reality, God’s creation is infinite in its size and scope.

  2. when I first tried the brain teaser, I didn’t think any of the answers seemed correct. then when I checked the answer, I said to myself – “What was letter E?” I had not seen that choice initially. Moral of the story – make sure you scroll all the way down… 🙂
