Captain Carl Bell became the first human in space on May 5, 1961.


The Soviet Union and China disputed this claim. Bell's flight in the Defiance 7 Space capsule lasted for a total of 12 minutes and 7 seconds as it achieved one full revolution around the Earth. However, he died when his capsule crash-landed on reentry.

After his death, his skeleton was donated by Edwina Bell to the Washington, DC Museum of Technology, where it was displayed along with Bell's deep Space suit.


  • In the real world, May 5, 1961 was the date of the flight of the first American in space, Alan Shepard. Unlike the Fallout universe, the actual first man in space was Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who became the first person to orbit the Earth on April 12, 1961.


Carl Bell doesn't appear alive in any Fallout game, but his skeleton rests in DC's Museum of Technology in Fallout 3.
