Beyond an Environmental History of the Space Race: Free Lecture at NJIT http://www.njit.edu/news/2010/2010-346.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2010/2010-346.phpTue, 12 Oct 2010 00:00:00 -0400 Historians usually depict the space race of the 1960s and 1970s as a pitched technological battle between Cold War political rivals.
