  ○Cosmonautics Day(宇宙飛行士の日)

  ・Saturday, April12, 2008 

Today is Cosmonautics Day in Russia.

In general, an astronaut in USA is called cosmonaut in

Russia, I read.

According to Wikipedia,

Cosmonautics Day (Russian: ДеньКосмонавтики)

is a holiday celebrated (mainly in Russia) every April 12 to

commemorate the first manned earth orbit. It was established

in the USSR on April 9, 1962.

It is celebrated in honour of the historic first manned

space flight made on April 12, 1961 by 27 year old Russian

cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin of the USSR, who made

one complete orbit around the Earth (lasting 1 h 48 min)

aboard the spacecraft Vostok 1.

Jaguar

The jaguar (Panthera onca), shown here at Edinburgh Zoo, is

a New World mammal of the Felidae family and one of four

"big cats". The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the

tiger and the lion, and on average the largest and most

powerful feline in the Western Hemisphere.



How brave a face it has!
