The Day that Changed the World. Everyone has days or events in their lives that remain vividly in their memory - births, deaths and of course marriages - but there are also those world-wide events that are so momentous they remain in the collective consciousness. For those who are old enough to remember, the Moon Landing on July 20th 1969 must surely rank No.1. As part of our Moon Landing 40th Anniversary celebrations, we have created a cover that all collectors will love.
It is available signed by Edgar Mitchell, Gene Cernan, Tom Stafford, Richard Gordon or Rusty Schweickart.
An astronaut or cosmonaut is a person trained by a human spaceflight program to command, pilot, or serve as a crew member of a spacecraft. Although generally reserved for professional space travelers, the terms are sometimes applied to anyone who travels into space, including scientists, politicians, journalists, and tourists.
Starting in the 1950s up to 2002, astronauts were sponsored and trained exclusively by governments, either by the military or by civilian space agencies. With the suborbital flight of the privately funded SpaceShipOne in 2004, a new category of astronaut was created: the commercial astronaut.
