U.S. Space Exploration
Space exploration was the "last frontier" of heroic discovery
for Americans of the 1960s. These videos, drawn from space
exploration's golden age, recapture that period's boldness and
sense of adventure. Highlights of space exploration depicted here
include John Glenn's pathbreaking earth orbit, the launching of the
first telecommunications satellite (Telstar), the moon-landing of
Apollo 11, the star-crossed voyage of Apollo 13, and the new vistas
in space exploration opened by the space shuttle Columbia.
