Manned Space Flight

My interest in space started at a very young age. I was 6 when my dad took me to the Hayden Planetarium. Also, around the same Sputnik and then the US satellite Explorer 1 was launched. I spent alot of time reading books on Astronomy and when Project Mercury started I watched every launch wether at home or in class. I was always interested in all the sciences
