Fifty years ago today...

Gordo, a.k.a. Old Reliable, with a handler.

Jupiter AM-13 launches Bioflight 1 on December 13, 1958.

Photographs courtesy the Air Force Space and Missile Museum in Cape Canaveral, Florida, where commemorative cacheted envelopes and postcards are available for sale with the Bioflight 1 pictorial cancellation.

According to museum's director, Emily Perry, you can place orders over the phone. If that is not an option, you might try e-mailing the museum for more information.

They have unpostmarked covers for $2, and covers with the special postmarker at $4. Postage is extra.
