    With space travel becoming common and private companies promising to one day sendtourists into orbit, it s easy to assume that travel to the moon and beyond was a goal muchsupported by Americans But the drive to launch humans beyond Earth s atmosphere wasn talways supported The story of what fueled the endeavor is told in The Space Race How the ColdWar Put Humans on the Moon by Matthew Brenden Wood.Part of the Inquire and Investigate series, The Space Race links the political competition betweenthe United States and the Soviet Union as the main drive for sending humans off the earth Eachwanted to be seen as having the most advanced technology Each wanted to send a message to theother that superiority in space meant superiority among nations on Earth.The Space Race expertly takes readers on a fascinating journey from the early origins of spacetravel through its experimental accomplishments and failures to the current day achievements Atimeline of events at the front and a glossary of words and terms at the back are good referencetools Blast Facts and other sidebars add interesting details to the main text, which offers manysuggestions for further research to help young readers learn The history also providesinsight into relations between the U.S and the Soviet Union that informs our current relationshipwith Russia.The Space Race is a great text for budding young scientists aged 12 and up or anyone interestedin the history of the space program and where it stands today.The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    What a wonderful summary for middle grade or junior high readers on the Cold War and the race to put a man on the moon Part of the Inquire and Investigate series designed to improve the books available for libraries on STEM topics I wish I d had books like this when I was young and wading through boring books on the topic Maybe I would have learned something.

    This is about the political background to the Space race between Russia and the USA It is organized with a variety of presentations, such as links to actual news reels or YouTube showings of the moon landing, and is a perfect YA read This was a One Book, One Phoenix selection.
