The Rocketry of the Apollo Program
Entering the new decade of the 1960's the United States faced a challenge. First, from our President in pushing us to reach for the seemingly impossible. Second, we were not alone in reaching for the same goal. The Soviets were also well in the race to reach the Moon first. I cover a bit more about the hardware and approach taken by the Soviet Union in another area. At this point, it's enough to highlight the sense of achievement coupled with urgency that brought America to one of the greatest achievements in history.
