The big anniversaries in space

There are two space anniversaries that stand out above all others: the first flight in space and the first walk on the moon. Tomorrow, April 12, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that flight, along with the 30th anniversary of the first Space Shuttle launch.
Dmitry Kondratyev, currently commanding the International Space Station: "Fifty years is a short period of time in history, but look at that leap from a small spacecraft to the huge International Space Station. We hope that during the next 50 years, another leap that is not less than has been done, will be done."
