In 1957 the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the first artificial earth satellite, and the space race had begun. Within a year the U.S. had developed NASA. The new National Aeronautics and Space Administration quickly assembled the first astronaut corps and began training to prepare them to pilot rockets into space.
 
Despite the efforts of what became known as Project Mercury, it was Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin who became the first man in space on April 12, 1961, causing President Kennedy to call for a major acceleration of the American space program. On May 5th, U.S. astronaut Alan Shepherd’s space flight set the stage for Kennedy’s address to Congress in which he stated, “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to Earth.”
 
His challenge launched a period of new growth for NASA and on July 20, 1969, America’s long-time dream became history when the Eagle landed and Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon, delivering the memorable quote, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” As a tribute to this occasion, the Postal Service issued two stamps designed by the father and son team of Paul and Chris Calle.
