Even though it happened in 1969, the first moon landing had a lasting effect on the world. Apollo 11 represented the culmination of decades of hard work for NASA. John F. Kennedy's dream of putting a person on the moon seemed foolish to many, but it remains one of the highest achievements of human work and ingenuity. The Space Race began in 1955 when both countries announced that they would soon be launching satellites into orbit. On October 4, 1957 the Russians placed the first successful satellite into orbit and it was called Sputnik I.

Creating NASA that lead to build new technologies during the Space Race, was proved because it helped U.S protect itself and today it still affect us in being able to accomplish our dreams. From President Kennedy’s contribution to the program to building Ranger Missions and Rockets Programs made America one of the most powerful and advanced country in the world. The Space Race not just only created shuttles, it created things we used now on daily basis like water purification, chemical detection, solar cells, and many more.
Landing on the moon was a great leap for mankind and technology as a whole. The Space Race was the major cause of the moon landing itself, but provided the United States with more victories than ever imaginable. They took the victory of Cold War, making thousands of inventions, and introducing new space shuttles and models. As Neil Armstrong once said "That's one small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind."
In response to this, the United States created the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to quickly catch up and create better and more advanced satellites and propel America forward into leading the race and eventually answer and discover questions that has made mankind wonder for many years and centurie... ... middle of paper ... ...he world? : The space race has made America a more dominant power in the world. It has progressed it politically to mark itself as a greater more powerful nation. Socially, the citizens of America are amazed by how the United States was able to win the space race by landing on the closest outer space object in history. However, though it is controversial that the soviet union should’ve won since they were the first to send an orbiting man, the United States has won the race to seize and gain control and dominance in space.
One of the most interesting things to me would fall under exploration and inventing. We are about to venture into the history of space and learn how man and his inventions have gotten there. This renowned and famous moonwalk, which confused scientists for years, had finally become a dream come true not only for Americans, but also the entire world. It was July 20, 1969, the day that reshaped our nation and gave us unprecedented dreams for the future. The impact of that day goes far beyond our self-esteem and patriotism; that day changed the history of space exploration and technology forever.
All the astronauts on the Columbia were scientists and performing tasks from tumor growth experiments to global climate change that could only be done in Space. But even the families of the astronauts said the explorers left Earth with "a willingness to accept risk in the pursuit of knowledge - knowledge that might improve the quality of life for all mankind." The closest people to the astronauts, their families, who were hurt by the tragedy the most also added, “the bold exploration of space must go on.” NASA and space exploration will continue to go on and I believe the strength behind the program will also grow as more discoveries are made. As humans it is our nature to explore and besides that, thousands of benefits from saving lives to everyday life are attributed to NASA. The possibilities of space exploration are only limited by your imagination and we are only in the early stages of it.
The political, social, and economic changes impacted the relationship between the two countries. Many of the issues began when they took the fight to space to see who had the best technology, military firepower, and stronger social, political, and economic systems. Politics was the main point, over science, in Americas point of view of the Space Race, but to the Soviets it was Science over everything. The Space Race was a giant step into the United States winning the Cold War.
On July 20, 1969, the United States’ Apollo 11 made it first manned mission to land on the moon. This landing included a team of 3 experienced astronauts, all of which had flown missions into space before. This team included Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The plans for the manned moon exploration began during the Eisenhower administration. Although a manned moon landing proved to be an extreme challenge to the US, they were determined to do it.
The article "a" makes a big difference, and with over half a billion people watching his "moonwalk", he messed up on a big stage. The race originally started when the USSR launched Sputnik I, which sparked the race. JFK made his claim, and it had begun. The United States made NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Agency, and started on Project Apollo. After a lot of hard work, and mishaps, the United States were able to prevail, and launched Apollo 11, the first manned mission to ever land on the moon.
Since the launch of Sputnik 1, Russia and America continually compete against one another in the exploration of space. The idea of exploring a new frontier intrigued the citizens of both countries. The race to achieve the first successful launch into space created the institution of two independent space programs, the Soviet Space Program and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Since their origins, the agencies contrasted in mission procedures, construction, and view of space’s applications. Though the two programs ultimately amalgamated to further exploration and elevate productivity, Russia proves the victor as it dominates the gateway to space.
