Third country in space: 30 years

Today, it's been exactly 30 years since the moment when the third country sent its man to space.

Vladimir Remek who is 50% Czech, 50% Slovak and who flew aboard Soyuz 28 - together with Alexey Gubarev - became the first non-Soviet, non-American man in space. Today, he is a member of the European Parliament for the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia.
