Geopolitics of Space: Past, Present, Future

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Apollo 11: Lessons for All Time

Geopolitics of Space: Past, Present, Future

Taught by Professor Robert M. Hazen and 2 others | 16 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The Apollo space mission was more than just a giant leap for mankind in terms of scientific developments and insights into both space and Earth, it was also a huge step in advancing America’s position in the geopolitical world as the Cold War extended into space. Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius, the Lindsay Young Professor of History and Director of the Center for the Study of War and Society, invites you to investigate how the Space Race was not just a matter of prestige, but how it also established a claim on the future for the “winner’s” values, ideology, and way of life.
