Issue Five | Fall 2019 | The Race to Space


We’re heading to space in Issue Five. Discover the incredible tale of the space race of the 1960s between the United States and the Soviet Union. Each country wanted to be first to the moon. As we know, the USA won the race, but it was ultimately a victory for the entire world. Learn more about this amazing adventure and how it led to the creation of other items we still use today in our everyday lives.
