Dawn of the Space Age

In honor of the first rock powered plane flight and the launch of Space shuttle STS-68 (Endeavour 7), we are commemorating milestones in human space flight by showing Dawn of the Space Age today.

Re-live the excitement and drama of the early days of space exploration, from the launch of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik, to the magnificent lunar landings and privately operated space flights. Meet some of the men and women who risked their lives; witness their drive, their passion, and their perseverance to explore.
