I have my own picture on the Google desktop page, or whatever
it is called, when it stays there. I has the tendency
to disappear every so often. So I did see the Bunsen
drawing today, and found it impressive.
NOW to read the article. Thanks.

I guess yours does not show it. Mine shows a space suit
and flight: as Bran says: Yuri Gagarin. Boy do I remember
that. Really got the space race started after the
situation with the dog who died in space.

I recall being excited by news of the launch, but devastated by her death. 'Twas the stuff of nightmares.
