As the Cold War raged on between the Soviet Union and the United States, both nations battled to achieve supremacy in space exploration. This rivalry sparked an ambitious Space Race, especially after Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel to outer space in 1961. This unbelievable mission is commemorated in our special newspaper book. 

Our Space Race newspaper book is filled with extraordinary headlines written in the Telegraph during the adventurous Space Race, allowing you to follow along with newspaper reports to see the efforts of both nations to put a man on the moon. Beginning in 1961 and chronicling all the events of the sixties, our book includes all the important newspaper articles printed at the time, which kept the public informed of each nation’s dedication to the mission. With a Name and Message included, this book makes a fascinating gift for a history lover!

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.
