The Cold War was at its height when the USSR successfully launched the world’s first satellite. In the uproar that followed, the American space initiative was born. Students will read about the dedicated scientists who made the dream of space exploration a reality, how the United States responded to the Soviet achievement, and how satellites continue to make communication on Earth easier.
