    What does it mean by that? plz help

    Hi... please read the below sentence.

    Then came the simple announcement that shattered forever man's ancient isolation on earth: "The world's first spaceship Vostok [East], with a man on board, has been launched on April 12 in the Soviet Union on a round-the-world orbit.

    I have two questions. First, is 'announcement' the subject?

    Second, What does "on a round-the-world" mean?

    Thank You..
