Decades later, the lure of space exploration still sparks our imaginations. How did it all begin, and where else will it lead? This series chronicles the history of space exploration, from the invention of the rocket in China in the thirteenth century to the latest in space probes and technological advancements.

History of Space Exploration. Science, technology and engineering. The landing effectively ended the Space Race and is considered by many, including myself, to be one of the most important events in the history of human civilization that was a result of over a decade of spaceflight pioneering, both by Americans and Soviets alike. It is estimated that a total of 600 million people all over the world watched the moonwalk live as it happened, making it one of the most viewed events in history.

History of space exploration. In the United States, Robert Hutchings Goddard became interested in space exploration after reading works such as The War of the Worlds. Even as a young man, he dedicated himself to working on spaceflight. In his 1904 high-school graduation speech, he stated that it is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.

Modern space exploration is reaching areas once only dreamed about. Mars is focal point of modern space exploration, and manned Mars exploration is a long-term goal of the. United States. NASA is on a journey to Mars, with a goal of sending humans to the Red Planet in the 2030s. NASA and its partners have sent orbiters, landers, and rovers, increasing our knowledge about the planet. The Curiosity Rover has gathered radiation data to protect astronauts, and the MARS 2020 Rover will study the availability of oxygen and other Martian resources.

The space race, as a by-product, did produce the majority of this technology, therefore making Sputnik an indirect, but integral, contributor. Global culture was also heavily influenced by space exploration in the 20th century. The beginning of the space age spanned nearly all aspects of human living on Earth; no part of modern society remained unaffected. This instrument of human handiwork, relatively un-complex in nature and design, had the capacity to drastically affect history and human thinking in a way that the politicians, press, and celebrities never could have done themselves.

Between 1990 and 2002 he served as chief historian of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Introduces the early history of space flight, including the Chinese invention of the rocket, the pioneering ideas of Tsiolkovsky, the early experiments of Goddard, and various rocket and satellite launchings up through 1967.
