For example, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan – three landlocked countries – all maintain naval fleets on the vast lake, the Caspian Sea, on which they border. Paraguay has armed patrol boats on the country's major rivers because any enemy nation could reach the heart of Paraguay by traveling upstream through these rivers from the open sea through Argentina. Switzerland – historically neutral, yet one of the most armed countries in the world – also has armed patrol boats to monitor its many lakes. Hungary maintains a full arsenal of ships, including battleships and minesweepers.

In the early 1960s, the Soviet Union began its Vostok program with a series of unmanned test flights to investigate the possibilities and means for a crewed mission, before sending Yuri Gagarin into space. Korabl-Sputnik 1, known as "Sputnik 4" in the West, was the first test flight of the Vostok program. The 4.5-ton spacecraft carried a variety of scientific instruments, including a television camera and a self-contained biological cabin with a dummy astronaut. The purpose of the mission was to study the operation of life support systems and the stresses of flight.

 One of the most fascinating and important events in human history is the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon.

 In the heart of Harlem, New York City, at the northwest corner of 128th Street and 5th Avenue, is a small rectangular space. A NYC Parks Department sign attached to the perimeter fence identifies the nearly empty lot as "Collier Brothers Park." It is one of the smallest parks in New York City, consisting of a few benches, a few potted plants, and several trees to provide shade. New York City has dozens of such 'pocket parks' scattered throughout the city, so this is not unusual. The strangest thing is the story of the brothers after whom the park is named.
