Today (May 5, 2010) is the 49th anniversary of Alan Shepard's 15-minute space flight - the first space flight by an American.
At 10:34 a.m. Eastern Daylight time on May 5, 1961, Alan Shepard was the first American launched into space. The story was front-page news in the New York Times, and probably every other paper in the land. Check out the NYT front page story.
