There's No Space Like Home
Astronauts and cosmonauts from many different parts of the world have
made important contributions to the body of scientific knowledge. Ten
of those space travelers, as well as the countries of their births, have
been listed below. Each space pioneer is depending upon your map skills
to get them safely back home. A world map has been labeled with the
letters A through J. Each letter marks the birth country of one of the
astronauts or cosmonauts. Your mission will be accomplished if you are
able to type the letter of the correct birth country in the box
following each space traveler's name.
