The Big Two have done the lion’s share of Space exploration and travel since Sputnik blasted into orbit 58 years ago. Since then, America and the U.S.S.R./Russia have been joined in Space by satellites, spacecraft, or astronauts from more than 70 countries. In 1962, Canada became the third country after the U.S.S.R. (1957) and the U.S.A. (1958) to have its own domestically built satellite orbiting Earth.
