Race to the Terrestrial Planets [4K]

Space News

From studying the dusty surface of Mars, to plunging into the atmosphere of Venus, over the last 60 years, we’ve launched hundreds of probes into space on trajectories to visit each of the terrestrial planets. But for all the fascinating discoveries made on the way, humanity’s journey towards the stars started out in a much darker place- a battlefront between the world’s then two great competing superpowers. And in this first episode on my new series on probes, we will revisit this space race, and the major milestones on route to visiting each of the terrestrial planets.
