The United States beat everyone in the world in the space race.  First manned flight, first man on the moon.  I mean Russia got the first satellite up, but Sputnik was little more than a tin sphere.

Looks like Canada is catching up with us by sending their first man into space.  I mean we don't even have a Space Shuttle anymore and look what they did.  Now I will admit it's just a Lego man, but I think seeing the Canadian flag in outer space will give my co-worker Dre a thrill.  Enjoy!
