Famous Hollywood actor Jon Cryer has given his voice to a new NASA film celebrating 50th anniversary of the first spacewalk by a U.S. astronaut.

On June 3, 1965, NASA astronaut Ed White became the first American to walk in space.

NASA is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.S.’ first extravehicular activity (EVA) — better known as a spacewalk — through a number of commemorative features.

On June 1, NASA will premiere a documentary narrated by actor Jon on the history and future of humans working on a tether in space.

The film titled “Suit Up” will be aired on NASA Television and can be seen on the US space agency’s website and YouTube account.

The documentary features interviews with NASA Administrator and astronaut Charles Bolden, NASA Deputy Administrator and spacesuit designer Dava Newman, as well as other astronauts, engineers, technicians, managers and luminaries of spacewalk history.

They will share their personal stories that cover the full EVA experience — from spacesuit manufacturing to spacewalk manoeuvring — all brought to life through historical and HD footage.IANS

Here's a fairly astounding fact: The entire history of the United States has unfolded in the time it's taken Pluto to orbit the Sun once.

The United States has been around for 238 years. A year on Pluto is 248 years. (Thanks to Corey Powell for pointing out this map, recently published by the New Horizons team.)

NASA's New Horizons probe is now closing in on Pluto, due to reach it on Tuesday after a nine-year journey. And though that might seem like a long time, the truth is that Pluto has been traveling towards this rendezvous for much, much longer.

Related NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto, explained

The last time Pluto was in its current position — in 1768 — humans were totally unaware of its existence (it was discovered in 1930). At the time, humans still hadn't figured out how species evolve, how germs transmit diseases, or how the Earth's tectonic plates slide around. Aviation was still decades away — and spaceflight wouldn't happen for nearly 200 years.

All of which is to say: it's pretty amazing that, this time around, Pluto will be visited by a tiny robot sent by a curious species of apes three billion miles away. A lot can change in a single orbit.
