The Launch of Sputnik 1 by the Soviet Union scared America by showing they could also do great things. Becoming the world's first artificial satellite, this was a huge accomplishment.
Sputnik 2, also y the Soviets, made them the first to send a living creature into space. The dog died in space but it was another first for Communism.
The launch of Explorer 1 was America sending a satellite into space to strike back. NASA wasn't formed yet, so it was launched by the Army Ballistic Missile Agency.
Vostok 1 was the Soviets biggest Space Race accomplishment. This event was the first to put humans in space and this would be their last big blow in the Space Race.
Mercury Redstone 3 also known as Freedom 7 was an American Launched satellite to put humans in outer space setting America up for Apollo 11 and the famous moon landing.
On July 20th, 1969, America put humans on the moon. Landing on the moon was the final nail in the coffin to the soviets and ended the Space Race all in all.
