Four satellite launches into the Space Race, and the score—in terms of pounds put into orbit—is Communism, 1300; Capitalism, 33.

And the humiliations keep on coming. In history's biggest sales pitch ever, the Soviet Union is handing the United States its backside on a platter. But then a new capsule, the space equivalent of a '66 Corvette Stingray convertible starts to get some real traction as the Cold War gets hotter.

Nearly every single human with access to a TV set watched the blurry, almost surreal image of Neil Armstrong stepping live onto the surface of the moon. But after Apollo 11 returned to earth, we got an entirely different view of those first historic moments.
Join us for the journey of Apollo 11, the seven Apollo Missions that followed, and decades of disappointments and shortfalls, crowned at last with a new hope for our future in space.
