Interesting tube recording USA's delayed but much anticipated first man in Earth Orbit. The year - 1962

After Yuri Gagarin and Gherman Titov suceeded a year or so earlier, NASA put it's first man - John Glenn into a "minimum seven orbits" spin of the planet.

And of course, much deliberation and argument lead the scientists to deciding it prudent to put a chimpanzee into a test flight vehicle the preceding year.
