Space Race

Space Race




Starting on August 2, 1955 the Space Race pitted the bitter Cold War rivals the United States vs the USSR in a battle for space supremacy.  The Russians were first to launch a satellite with Sputnik 1 on October 4, 1957.  The Americans answered back with the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon on July 29, 1969.  While making his first steps on the Moon astronaut Neil Armstrong said the famous words "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."    

This period garnered many advancements that have ushered a new era in human technology.  The Space Race ended in 1972 with the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project.
