April 27, 2019, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ McCarthy Center Forum, Framingham State University
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.
