It is fun to look at the coming of the Space Age through movies such as October Sky(movie), Rocket Boy(book), or just looking into the history of rockets. We are actually in a NEW Space Race! Seriously, you could be the next Homer Hickam or von Braun.

Research the current New Space Race using the below links as well as general online searches. Post some of your findings under "New Space Race" on the discussion board. Respond to a few other student's findings.
