Summary
In commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Sputnik launch, a lively study chronicles the epic race to the moon, drawing on rare photographs and behind-the-scenes perspectives from both sides of the space race to re-create both countries' space exploration programs, the scientists and political leaders involved, and the key achievements of both.
