The United States enters the space race...



Item # 669971

February 1, 1958

SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER, EXTRA, February 1, 1958 

* 1st satellite put into space by the United States
* EXPLORER 1 (1ST REPORT)


The front page has a great banner headline announcing America's successful entry in the space race with: "1ST U. S. MOON ORBITS EARTH" with a subheads and photo of the launching. (see) Nice for display. Keep in mind this was but 5 months after the Soviet Union's successful launch of Sputnik which shocked American scientists and caused a rush to make this launch happen as early as possible. And also just a few months after America's first effort, which resulted in an embarrassing failure.
Complete 1st section only with 14 pages, nice condition.
