In one of the most competitive races in United States history

the challenge to put man in space captivated the world during the second half of the 20th century. With rockets that were taller than the Statue of Liberty, the United States and the Soviet Union were able to accomplish their goals early on by using innovative engineering.

How are they being preserved to ensure their existence for future generations?
Save Our History: Apollo: The Race Against Time, with host Steve Thomas, recounts the history of the space program, shows the preservation process of its famous relics, and reveals some of the secrets that NASA has for the future.
