Universe pt. 80 – March 13, 2015

This show focuses on the early race to space between the U.S.A and the Soviet Union from the late ‘50s through the ultimate (and apparently final) end game of landing on the Moon in 1969. Much of this is told from the Soviet perspective, complete with Russian pop music touching on the subject. From Sputnik’s launch in 1957 which started it all off, to the catch-up efforts by America which eventually led to Americans being the first humans to walk on the Moon, we follow the details of this extremely productive and adventurous Cold War competition for supremacy in space.
