Space Race: 20th Century Timeline and Firsts
Humanity has been interested in space exploration for hundreds of years but it was only in the 20th century that it became physically possible. During this time, we built rockets, spaceships and space shuttles and both the first animals and humans reached space. By the late 1960s, we had landed on the moon. As we continue our space exploration in the new millennium, we are going farther and farther than we've ever been before in our search for knowledge about the worlds and universes beyond. In this WatchMojo.com video, we learn more about the history of space exploration.
