to launch a human to space.

The new superhero.'

Yuri Gagarin.

I thought it was absolutely remarkable

that a human being could go into space.

But then, it was the feeling of.'

"Why isn't America doing this, too?"

And this generation does not intend...

to founder in the backwash...

of the coming age of space.

We mean to be a part of it,

we mean to lead it!

I actually sold my bicycle

to buy a telescope kit.

And then a friend of mine and I

spent awhile out at night...

making a map of the moon,

just like real astronomers.

Tranquility Base here,

the Eagle has landed.

That's one small step for man,

one giant leap for mankind.

The space race was in the air.

More kids wanted to be astronauts

than president.

But the Cold War continued to escalate.

Never in human history had so much

death-dealing power been amassed.

But even the threat of annihilation...

couldn't smother

the human urge to explore.

In the U.S., Titan missile carriers

also launched the scientific probes...

Viking and Voyager,

to survey the planets.

Some of the Soviet rockets that

came off this weapons assembly line...

were earmarked

for space exploration, too.

Then in 1975...

the first joint U.S. -Soviet mission

in space, Apollo-Soyuz...

ignited hope for future cooperation.

As tensions cooled further,

new partnerships emerged...

and American companies began

successful joint ventures...

with the rocket builders at Krunichev.

Then, it seemed almost overnight,

the Cold War ended.

The Soviet Union was gone.

These workers woke up

in a brand new country.

The new Russia now had the MIR station.

The U.S. had the shuttle.

American and Russian leaders agreed.'

"Why not combine these great assets

and explore space together?"

Ambitious new joint missions have begun.
