Moon Race: The U.S.-Soviet Competition to Put a Human on the Moon

Saturday, April 27, 2019

In 1957, the first Sputnik propelled the USSR to leadership in space. Shocked, America mobilized to demonstrate its technology surpassed Russia's - a furious, decade-long race ensued. But, it wasn't obvious until the finish line that Neil Armstrong, and not Alexei Leonov, would be first to walk on another world. Join Dr. McDowell in an exciting review of the events that marked a pivotal moment in history. Science on State Street is organized and coordinated by the McAuliffe Center and the MetroWest STEM Education Network.
