According to historian Howard Nobel, the Soviet Union launched the first satellite into orbit around the Earth which initiated the “Space Race” competition between them and the United States 62 years ago. Although the United States trailed behind, on July 16, 1969, the first man on the moon was an American.
Nobel will tell this fascinating story of failure and success and the course of events that took place between Sputnik in 1957 and the “Eagle” landing on the moon in 1969 when he speaks at the Oct. 8 Women’s Connection Brunch held from 9:15 -11 a.m. at the Farmington Presbyterian Church Tea Room on Columbia Street, at the Casey Street entrance.
