For what it's worth, we have established this was during the Gemini program.

Not sure about the first American, but as an aside, who was the first person to 'walk' in space?

That's the current question! Are we giving up on this one?

White died in the Apollo 1 capsule fire that also killed Grissom and Chaffee.

Next Question:

On December 24, 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 send a message back to earth that resulted in a lawsuit that went all the way to the Supreme Court.

1. What was the message?
2. Who started the lawsuit?

I remeber the message, but not sure who sued. As they circled the moon and saw the earth:

1. From the book of Genesis: "In the beggining God created the heavens and the earth....."
2. I believe it was an atheist.

It was Genesis and atheist Madaline Murry O'hare started that lawsuit.

One of the best kept secrets of NASA was during Apollo 11, just after the Eagle landed and the initial landing checklist were complete, Buzz Aldrin pulled out a special "low gravity" communion kit and observed communion on the Moon with Armstrong.

For years, no one knew.

NEXT QUESTION:

This famous test pilot dubbed every aircraft he ever flew "Glamorous Glennis"

Who was the pilot and why did he do this?

You are correct sir!

And now I have to go think of some new questions...

Oh here we go: The Apollo 10 Command Module and LEM were named after what two popular cartoon characters?

Road Runner is way off, other three are closer.

For the XYL tell her the jazz piano music theme for all the Peanuts TV specials was a tune called "Linus and Lucy"

Charlie Brown?

Since they were "close" to the moon but didn't actually land? Just like Charlie Brown never actually got to kick that blasted football.

OK, Charlie Brown was the Command Module, and Snoopy was the LEM. Apollo 10 was a dress rehearsal for Apollo 11. Snoopy never touched the lunar surface.

Snoopy lives on. The Descent Stage, (the part with the legs) was crashed into the lunar surface. The Ascent Stage (where the astronauts ride) is in a stable orbit around the Moon. All of the other LEM assent stages have been destroyed, typically by crashing into the moon, except Apollo 13 which eventually burned up in earths atmosphere.

Charles Schultz never charged NASA for the use of his copyrighted characters. He drew all artwork involving the Peanuts characters himself, not relegating the work to commercial artists.

Snoopy was selected as an official mascot for a NASA safety program, and today for a NASA civilian employee to win the "Silver Snoopy" award is a high honor for achievement, the winner receives a plaque and a Snoopy pin that has been flown in space.

I'll have to think a while for the next question.
