Race To Space
On May 25, 1961 John Fitzgerald Kennedy announced that they would send a man to the moon before the end of the 1960's. That dream came true on July 16, 1969 when Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin Aldrin flew to the moon in the Saturn V rocket. They were in space for 8 days, 14 hours, and 12 minutes. Neil said a comment in space he was there "One small step for man, but a giant leap for man kind." MOON WALK
The race started October 4, 1957 when they launched the Sutnik.It was a 184 lbs satellite. 4 years later the Soviets followed this primitive satellite with the flight of Yury Gagarin, a 27-year-old fighter pilot who became the first human to orbit the earth. The Sputnik had an orbit with an apogee of 584 miles and a perigee of 143 miles.

Sergei Korolev Was an American expendable man-rated rocket used by NASA's Apollo and Skylab programs from 1967 until 1973. NASA launched 13 Saturn V's from the Kennedy Space Center. It remains the largest and most powerful launch vehicle ever brought to operational status. Saturn V The Space Race sparked unprecedented increases in spending on education and pure research, which accelerated scientific advancements and led to beneficial spin-off technologies. An unforeseen consequence was that the Space Race contributed to the birth of the enviromental movement. Effects of Race WINNER OF SPACE There is no proven winner of the race.
