INTRODUCTION

So... What causes the space race?

Let's define the term "space race". It refers to the competition between the USA and the USSR in the field of astrology. In the 1950s, the Cold War began between these two countries, as did the nuclear arms race. In an effort to remain number one, both countries wanted to be the first to send a man into space.

This conquest lasted from the 1950s until 1975.

Timeline

Important dates in the conquest of space...

Important date of change

This is the date when the first animal, a dog, named Laika, was put into orbit. This was the Sputnik 2 mission by the USSR.

Day of the first spacewalk by Alexei Leonov, in the Voskhod 2 mission, by the USSR.

One of the most important, though little known, dates. It is the day the first man was put into orbit around the Earth, and thus the first time a man went into space, by the USSR. The man in question was Yuri Gagarin, who became an idol in Russia, and the mission was called Vostok 1.

The best known date is the day of Neil Armstrong's first step on the Moon, in the American Apollo 11 mission.

Date corresponding to the first photos of the far side of the Moon, by the USSR.

It was on the Vostok 6 mission that the USSR sent the first woman into space, Valentina Terechkova.
