NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) changed the history of the world in a positive way due to winning the Space Race against the Soviet Union and making multiple scientific breakthroughs in space discovery. The Space Race was a small part of a war against The Soviet Union, this was known as The Cold War. NASA started when John F. Kennedy ordered the vice president, Lyndon B. Johnson, to make a national space program before the decade was over. After The Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik, the first satellite in space in 1957, NASA was founded a year later, in 1958. The United States poured resources into the space program trying to out smart The Soviet Union for almost twenty years. But after United States put the first man on the moon before the Russians in 1969, NASA led the world in space discovery. Helping to make The International Space Station and making The Hubble Telescope it made multiple space discoveries. Giving America pride when it needed it most, in The Cold War, NASA has changed the world positively. - Henry Z.
