Welcome to TheSpaceRace.com, a website dedicated to the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs.
This site is intended to be a reference for people learning about space history, whether they are students or just space enthusiasts.
You will find information about the manned missions to Earth orbit and the Moon during the 1960’s and 1970’s in the Encyclopedia. In the Multimedia archives you will have access to many photographs, audio recordings, and videos.
The sites content was limited to the earlier American space programs for two reasons. The first reason is that it is the era of space exploration that interests me the most. The second reason is that the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs have ended while the Shuttle and Space Station are still active programs and it would be too hard for me to keep the site up to date. I hope to add information about the Soviet space programs in the future.
