"Astronaut" technically applies to all human space travelers regardless of nationality or allegiance; however, astronauts fielded by Russia or the Soviet Union are typically known instead as cosmonauts (from the Russian "kosmos" (космос), meaning "space", also borrowed from Greek) in order to distinguish them from American or otherwise NATO-oriented space travellers.
The first human to enter space was Yuri Gagarin of the Soviet Union. He was launched on April 12, 1961, taking the Vostok 1 and orbiting the earth for 108 minutes. The first woman to enter space was Valentina Tereshkova of the Soviet Union. She was launched on June 16, 1963, and orbited the Earth on the Vostok 6 spacecraft for nearly three days.
Alan Shepard made a 15-minute suborbital flight on Freedom 7 on May 5, 1961, becoming the first American to enter space and the second astronaut. The first American to orbit the earth was John Glenn, who boarded Friendship 7 on February 20, 1962. The first American woman to enter space was Sally Ryder, during the Challenger space shuttle mission STS-7, June 18, 1983. In 1992, Mae Jemison became the first African-American woman to travel in space aboard the STS-47.
The universe is colorful to us, and astronauts are ready to enter space to explore unknown scenery. Seen from space, the earth looks particularly vivid. The blue is the ocean, the green is the land and forest, the aurora is dancing in the polar regions, and lightning storms are constantly flashing like fireflies. The land has ancient complex textures, and no boundary can restrain it. It is incredibly hard to believe that the thin atmosphere protects 7 billion lives on Earth from the dark, ruthless negative effects. Astronauts can see when their bodies are floating up weightlessly.
Weightlessness-This experience is surreal, and perhaps most people are not used to it. Novice astronauts tiptoe like a baby learning to walk, sleeping on the ceiling. Their hair also stands upright as if it is full of static electricity.
Since the beginning of space exploration, no more than 700 people have been to outer space. On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the Washington Post interviewed 50 astronauts from seven countries. Astronauts are required to orbit at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour, circling the earth every 90 minutes, and repeat the process.
Artist Mr Mech stands out with his unique, recognizable steampunk style and pain-staking perfectionism and attention to detail. The insects and other critters that he crafts from spare watch、cycle、car parts look like fantastic creatures out of an alternate retro universe。
The original intention and significance of the creation of the astronaut series, just like what American Astronaut Armstrong said——That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind——We should always remain in awe of the universe and keep exploring.
The moon lander, not only looks like an astronaut who landed on the moon, but also can be used as a night light to be placed on the desktop. The first step to complete the moon landing is of course to complete the assembly.
