The first American astronaut was called GORDO !
He was in the nose cone of a 50 ton Jupiter AM-13, which usually carries intermediate-range missiles. It was fired by the army from Cape Canaveral in Florida on the morning of December 15th 1958. The flight lasted 15 minutes during which Gordo survived a 300 mile journey into space and then travelled more than 1,500 miles in the rocket until it dropped in the South Atlantic.
Unfortunately a technical problem with the recovery gear meant a parachute failed to open and the nose-cone sank taking Gordo with it. The US Army abandoned the search after six hours.
