"The Space Race was an unofficial competition for spaceflight dominance between Cold War rivals the United States and the Soviet Union. This interesting title sets the scene for lunar and space exploration by both countries, describing early rocket development, NASA's Gemini program, which put humans in space, and the development of robot explorers. Maps show how early astronomers mapped the Moon hundreds of years ago, and what materials the Moon is made up of."-- Provided by publisher.
