Today is the 50th anniversary of human space flight. Wikipedia wrote:
The first human spaceflight was accomplished on April 12, 1961 by Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. The only countries to have independent human spaceflight capability are Russia, United States and China. As of 2010, human spaceflights are being actively launched by the Soyuz programme conducted by the Russian Federal Space Agency, the Space Shuttle program conducted by NASA, and the Shenzhou program conducted by the China National Space Administration.
Space as a number equals 17135. 17 is a prime number that's known for "New Beginnings" and the number 135 corresponds to Sun (135).
Space (17135) days prior to 19610412 brings us to 19140514 which is the day that is always 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th which is the day that you can watch the Sun (135) rise over Lake Michigan at EXACTLY 5:55 am which is the advent of the Leo (356th) minute of the New (555) day which is ONE (1) minute from the END (554) of darkness.

And if we move forward Space (17135) days from 19610412 we will arrive at 20080311 which is EXACTLY ONE (1) year from the end of the 308th cycle of 2389 prime days since August 11th in 6 BC. 2389 is the Leo (356th) prime number and 3/11 (311) is the 65th (ON) prime number.
Another cool aspect of Space (17135) is that it factors into 23 "I (9) Am (14)" prime X 745. 23 prime corresponds to our Lord's original name and title given to Moses on Mt. Sinai "I Am...the Lord thy God..." Exodus 20:2. I learned this Divine Science of Numerical Corrrespondences from Dean Fagerstrom who was heavily influenced by Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) who was one of the greatest mathematician, scientists, inventors and theologians in all of world history.
745 - the non-prime factor of Space (17135) above - days prior to 19610412 brings us back to 19590329 which was the 187th anniversary of Swedenborg's passing/ascension in 1772 which he predicted the EXACT date and time of months in advance. 187 is an important number for me personally for it's the exact number of days that separate my birth, 2/05, and our Lord's Birth, August 11th, in 1958 - the year I was born.
I first made contact with both Dean Fagerstrom and - indirectly to Swedenborg - on 20010329 which was the 229th anniversary of Swedenborg's passing/ascension. This was the day that I called the Swedenborg Foundation after I had read Helen Keller's little book, My Religion, the night before. I was compelled to go to my favorite used bookstore here in Evanston the afternoon before - March 28th - where I walked over to a certain isle and reach above my head to grab and purchase Helen's book. My whole life changed radically after reading that one little book. This dear lady in the customer service department of the Swedenborg Foundation gave me advice on which books of Swedenborg to read and then based on what I was sharing with her about numbers over the phone she personally suggested that I call Dean Fagerstrom who lived in upstate NY at the time. I called Dean immediately and began learning this incredible ancient science of numbers that I am convinced can be used to manifest the music of more and more of our Lord's goodwill, truth and love into our world.
So, to come full circle, the first day that mankind flew into outerspace was a physical correspondence to an upcoming spiritual revolution that would ultimately take place.
