“National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958” Analysis Exploring the Unknown: Selected Documents in the History of the U.S. Civil Space Program . Ed. John Logsdon, Washington D.C. NASA History Office, 1995. vol.1, 334-344. During the Cold War, there was extreme tension and animosity between Russia and the United States. The American public showed great nationalism after World War II and considered America to be the one supreme power in the world. Nonetheless, Americans worried about an upcoming war against Russia, the other world power. After the successful Russian launching of Sputnik I on October 4, 1957 and Sputnik II on November 3, 1957 into space, American world supremacy was brought to question. The American government and President Dwight Eisenhower knew they had to reevaluate and strengthen its aeronautical and space programs to counteract the publicity and fear that was created by Sputnik. On July 29, 1958, President Eisenhower signed the “National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
