Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of NASA

Following the successful Soviet launch of Sputnik I, the first man-made human satellite, the US was alarmed by the potential threat the Soviet technology could pose.  President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s administration created the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA).

NACA immediately set to work exploring what a non-military space agency would involve. Meanwhile, several military organizations began planning out possible launch vehicles. They built and launched Vanguard that December, though it exploded shortly after takeoff. However, in January 1958, the US launched its first successful satellite to orbit the Earth – Explorer I.

President Eisenhower grew anxious about the Soviets’ advancements and wanted America to not only catch up, but surpass them.  As a result, on July 29, 1958, he signed a bill establishing NASA. The new organization began operations that October and absorbed the employees, budget, labs, and facilities of NACA.  In the coming years, NASA would take us the Moon and beyond.

You can add all this important space history to your collection with this mint souvenir sheet.  It pictures the Explorer I, a space shuttle, Neil Armstrong, and other astronauts.  Order yours today.
