As the Cold War developed, global competition with the Soviets became focused on the conquest of space. We will look at our early attempts at rocketry, the stunning setback of Sputnik and the US response to match Soviet gains. The development of the Mercury manned space project and our first efforts at manned space flight will be our main topic in this first session.
