The number of humans who escaped Earth’s gravity and reached outer space has reached 600.

It has been 60 years since the beginning of the human journey into space.

The Associated Press reported that this record was set when SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, aboard the manned spacecraft ‘Crew Dragon Endurance’, sent four astronauts into space.

On April 12, 1961, Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin orbited the Earth for the first time in the world.

The list of 600 people includes Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on the moon in 1969, and Dr. So-yeon Lee, the first Korean to orbit the Earth in 2008.

Actor William Shatner, who experienced space for about 10 minutes aboard Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ space company Blue Origin’s private rocket spacecraft, was also on the list.

The International Aviation Federation (FAI) recognizes flights above 100 km in altitude as space flight.
