What's all this about then???
United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.http://unoosa.org/oosa/index.html
The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs was initially created as a small expert unit within the Secretariat to service the ad hoc Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space established by the General Assembly in its resolution 1348 (XIII) of 13 December 1958.
The so called first man in space was Yuri Gagarin on 12 April 1961.
So you got to ask the question why this office was set up in 1958.
Does anyone know anything about this?
Your input would be welcome.
