16 The Russian/U.S. Space Race Technological and ideological rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union, which developed during the Cold War USSR loses many lunar travel candidates after failed space attempts year after year Soviets get credited for sending the first unmanned probe to the moon in 1959 United States get credited for having the first man to ever walk on the moon in 1969

17 The Apollo 11 Hoax Many people think that it was fake, and that the whole event was staged and photoshopped The black backgrounds of their photographs are oddly lacking the many stars that should be visible in the sky. In photographs such as this one where both astronauts are visible, there is no sign of a camera. So, who took this picture?

18 ImpactImpact Showed superiority over Russia Approved JFK’s promise in having an American man walk on the moon and return home by the end of the century Became most significant space travel achievement of all-time Secured NASA’s existence for the next 40 years Made the United States proud to be Americans after the harsh decade of the 60s
