Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Space Race - Breaking the Sound Barrier. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Chuck Yeager was an American test pilot who was the first person to break the sound barrier, the point where a speeding object (such as an airplane) passes the speed of sound. Yeager made his history-setting flight on Oct. 14, 1947 in an airplane he dubbed “Glamorous Glennis,” after his wife. The Bell X-1 rocket plane (which today hangs in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum) passed Mach 1 following a drop from a B-29 airplane.

The monumental "top secret" event was kept classified until 1948, but once it hit the public airwaves, Yeager became a celebrity. He also received a prestigious aviation award called the Collier Trophy, which called his flight the greatest achievement in aviation since the Wright brothers first took flight in 1903.
