Description

At the height of the Cold War between America and Russia, hundreds of spacecrafts travelled into outer space. They sent back awe-inspiring images and sounds from Earth orbit, the Moon, and the planets of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Venus. This work is an exploratory story of this cultural and political phenomenon.
