Product Description
This is a 21 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Space Race – Project Mercury. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides and to the presentation as you need to.

When the Soviet Union beat the United States into space with the Sputnik mission in 1957 and with the first man into orbit in 1961. It caught the United States totally off guard. The United States responded by moving quickly to get a viable space program in place. This program became the Mercury space program. It was United States 1st organized effort to send the 1st astronauts to space in the early years of the Space Race.

The Mercury Project consisted of several unmanned test missions as well as several manned missions. At the end of the Mercury era, NASA prepared to move forward with the Gemini missions, in preparation for the Apollo missions to the Moon. The astronauts and ground teams for the Mercury missions proved that people could fly safely to space and return, and laid the groundwork for much of the technology and mission practices followed by NASA to this day.

The presentation covers the following:
