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.
