Synopsis

After World War II drew to a close, a new conflict began. The Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States spurred an engineering and scientific competition known as the Space Race. From beginning to end, the American public's attention was captivated, and the various developments by the Soviet and U.S. space programs were heavily covered in the national media.

Renowned documentarian and filmmaker David L. Wolper introduced American television audiences to the very first report about the Soviet and American space race (The Race for Space) which later earned an Oscar nomination. This groundbreaking television event, along with 2 subsequent documentary features, capture the worldwide phenomenon of space exploration and unlocking the mysteries of the universe.
