In 2009, it was discovered that there was water on the moon.  Amazing!  But did you know that 40 years before that, the first man walked on the moon.  In the 1960s, both the United States and the Soviet Union wanted to be the first in space.  No one had even gone into orbit back then but plans were underway to reach the moon.  In this graphic telling of the story, we see the men and women involved with both sides in their race for the moon.
