NEW DATE: The Space Race 1957-1975 at the Somers Library

The Soviet Union stunned the world in 1957, by putting the first artificial satellite into Earth orbit. By 1961, the Russians had also launched the first manned spacecraft and sent the first robotic probes to the Moon. In May 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced his daring plan for the American space program: landing a man on the Moon before the end of the decade. This presentation is packed with historic photographs and vintage concept art. Relive the dramatic “Space Race,” from the pioneering Mercury and Gemini flights to the first Apollo Moon landings and the lesser-known scientific missions that followed. Along the way, you will learn about the visionaries and scientists who made space travel possible, and the American astronauts who boldly traveled “Where no one has gone before.” Registration is required; please go to our online calendar here or call 914-232-5717.

Our programs are funded by The Friends of the Library - thanks for your support!
