A helium balloon can not travel higher than the atmosphere, To reach space you'd have to travel higher than a Helium balloon can travel.

The first American was not a human, Either dog or monkey, forget which.

Ummm, nope.

Not after Ham the monkey, Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom.

To be precise, Ham was a chimpanzee, which is an ape, not a monkey. As far as his citizenship goes, he was captured in Africa and his passport status remains unknown.

I'll have mercy on Greg.

3 orbits, should have been 7, but mission control had a false alarm about the heat shield being loose so the cut the mission short.

Capsule name was Friendship 7.

And John Glenn was a United States Marine!

NEXT QUESTION:

NASA launched 2 spacecraft named Challenger. One was the ill fated shuttle. What and where is the other one?

Hey now! I was closer on my first orbits swag! And I got the service correct on my second guess. So did the 7 in the name come from the number of orbits it was supposed to make?

Ok. This one "sounds" familiar...

Challenger is also a deep space probe right? And it's somewhere out in space. Orbiting a planet or something like that. Right? Right?

Geeze man you're killin me on these.

Correct!

The Lunar Lander (LEM) left behind by Apollo 17 was named Challenger, to encourage the resumption of manned moon missions, as Apollo 17 was the last of the Apollo program. Mission Commander Eugene Cernan was the last man to step from the lunar surface.

NEXT QUESTION:

The first American woman to fly as an astronaut was ...................... ?

Sally Ride is correct!

Andy, don't you mean "Ride, Captain, ride, upon your mystery ship..."
Or were you thinking "Mustang Sally"

NEXT QUESTION:

Who was the last American to fly into space alone?
