NASA
By Tammy Scarbrough
  

1     If you ever watched the space shuttle launch from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, you witnessed one of our country's greatest technological wonders.
 
2     The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was created on October 1, 1958, after the Soviets launched Sputnik into space. America knew that it had to do something to win the "space race." NASA immediately began to work on ways in which it could launch a human into space.
 
3     That goal was realized on May 5, 1961, when Alan Shepard became the first American launched into space. However, Shepard was not the first to orbit the Earth. On February 20, 1962, John Glenn was launched on an Atlas-6 rocket to accomplish that goal. Then, it finally happened. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped out of his Apollo 11 space vehicle and said the words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
