It says: "John Glenn was orbiting the Earth for the first time ever.."
-but I am sure Gagarin had that honour. A little further they speak of Soyuz as achieving "continuous human presence in space that lasted just eight days short of 10 years from September 5, 1989 to August 28, 1999".
That can't refer to Soyuz. It might refer to Mir.
But Soyuz is just a vessel that has a limited lifespan of about six months.
And they kind of suggest that they used a Saturn 1b to fly people to the moon.
Sounds like someone from History Channel wrote the exhibit text....
