episode one is always a great place to start.
Full Episode description
Join host Greg Jenner as he skyrockets back to the 20th century for a homeschool history lesson on the space race.
From ancient Assyrian astrology to modern spacecraft, we explore how superpowers Russia (Team USSR) and America (Team USA) raced each other into space, aiming to be the first to land a man on the Moon.
But don’t worry, we’ll also cover the really important stuff like which dogs went into orbit and the dangers of going to the toilet in a spacecraft.
