List of Human Spaceflights

List Of Human Spaceflights

These chronological lists include all crewed spaceflights that reached an altitude of at least 100 km (the FAI definition of spaceflight), or were launched with that intention but failed. The USA has adopted a slightly different definition of spaceflight, requiring an altitude of only 50 miles (80 km). During the 1960s, 13 flights of the US X-15rocket plane met the US criteria but only two met the FAI's. These lists include only the latter two flights; see the X-15article for a list of all 13. As of 27 November 2012 (2012 -11-27), there have been 293 manned spaceflights that reached 100 km or more in altitude, including 8 sub-orbital spaceflights.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or human:

    Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    Justice is a moral virtue, merely because it has that tendency to the good of mankind, and indeed is nothing but an artificial invention to that purpose. The same may be said of allegiance, of the laws of nations, of modesty, and of good manners. All these are mere human contrivances for the interest of society.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
