    In this May 5, 1961 image released by NASA, shows U.S. astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr., inside the Freedom 7 spacecraft ready to launch at the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Fla. Shepard became the first astronaut to man an U.S. spacecraft in orbit . Just 23 days earlier, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin had become the first man in space. After several delays and more than four hours in the capsule, Shepard was ready to go, and he famously urged mission controllers to ''fix your little problem and light this candle.'' NASA is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.S. human flight with several ceremonies and a parade. The U.S. Postal service will unveil two new stamps, one commemorates NASA's Project Mercury and Shepard's history launch and the other honor's NASA's Messenger, which became the first spacecraft to orbit the planet Mercury.
