How The Apollo 11 affected the World
The Apollo 11 also affected the whole world in many ways. The first was was the Cold War against the Soviet Union. The soviets surprised America by putting the satellite, Sputnik, into space, and sparked the space race. They also launched Yuri Gagarin into space and he became the 1st ever human in space. President Kennedy said that this was embarrassing for the U.S and he felt pressure to catch up to the Soviets. After some previous space missions, the Apollo 11 is launched into space and lands on the moon successfully. This gave the United Stages a big edge over the space race. The United States would then win the race later on.
This mission also caused the world to think more about space. Many countries began to get involved in space exploration when it wasn't popular before. The Apollo 11 also encouraged more space missions and activity outside of planet Earth. The Apollo 11 was a big mission in space exploration internationally.
