    NASA's Origins and the Dawn of the Space Age. By David S. F. Portree. Abstract. The twenty page narrative describes historical circumstances around Sputnik, the International Geophysical Year (IGY) and the formation of NASA from NACA in Appendices include reproductions of relevant historical documents.   For 25 years, from the dawn of the space age in the s to the threshold of almost routine launchings in the s, Mr. Kraft played crucial roles in the space program.

      NASA. In the early s, 13 trailblazing American women participated in a secret program to become America’s first female astronaut. Like many young pilots at the dawn of the Space Age. Starting with NASA's beginnings in the Cold War, the series follows the iconic moments of space exploration from the race to get the first man in space to the first steps on the moon. And with triumph and achievement comes risk and disaster, as the series follows the white-knuckle suspense of Apollo 13 and the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger.

    Since the space shuttle was retired in , NASA has been unable to fly people to space. Instead, it has had to pay Russia as much as $84 million a seat to take its astronauts to the space.   But settling space without repeating the same mistakes on Earth will require a robust policy framework. While our motivations to settle space have broadened and our ability to do so has advanced, the only legal framework for settling space comes from a deliberately vague international treaty drafted during the dawn of the space age.
