Back in the 1960s and 70s during the height of the space race, NASA decided to produce an educational radio series to keep people in the US updated and engaged in what was happening. These reels represent 30 non-sequential episodes from that now infamous series that would have been lent out to partnering radio stations for airing each week. Each reel runs at 7 1/2 ips and lasts for 4mins 30secs. They cover a multitude of topics from launches, training and scientific exploration and include interviews with key individuals.

Please note this sale is just for the reels and copyright of the audio content remains with NASA and no transfer of right is intended or implied.
