This fascinating entry in the "Nova" series looks back at the hotly contested space race between the United States and the Soviet Union, revealing the behind-the-scenes story of their successful launch of Sputnik I. Staggered and alarmed by Russia's accomplishment, the minds behind the U.S. space effort -- hobbled by politics and hypocrisy -- were forced to reassess the reasons for their lack of success.
