Join us as we look at the history of the space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. In this talk we’ll be comparing the achievements of both of these space programs and how the space race still benefits us today. Many of our modern technologies have their roots in this competition between nations. The talk for June will look at many different space programs, but will stop just shy of Apollo—we’ll save that for next month when we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Includes 7:00 p.m. showing of Journey to Space.
