It Was In All The Papers, But Do We Remember Or Appreciate It?

Believe it not, 60 years ago this month in 1958, the United States launched its first satellite, Explorer 1.

The event was huge for the US and for the people of what would become the “Space Coast” of Florida.

There would be more successes and far too many tragedies within the space program, but reaching for the stars carries a risk of falling.

We can think of no greater legacy for Explorer I and the men and women who created and launched it, to commit to a return to the exploration of space.
