Explore NASA's development from its founding in 1958 to its preparation for a moon landing. The beginning of space exploration was full of questions and unknowns; until they started sending living organisms into orbit, no one knew if the vacuum of outer space would be deadly. This film provides a 10-year history of National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) role in the exploration of space. It describes major accomplishments in aeronautics, atmospheric research, the use of scientific and applications satellites, studies of the moon and planets, and manned space flight. Originally released in 1968, this film is more than an account of hardware evolution. Tracing back to the birth of American space exploration, it recounts the unshakable optimism of a time when space seemed to offer unlimited opportunities.
