"We choose to go to the moon..." John F. Kennedy
Three... two... one... LIFTOFF!
The roar of the giant Saturn V engines becomes deafening as the gleaming rocket clears the launch tower. Within minutes it has enough velocity to reach orbit. America's space program is heading to the moon! But for two years the Russians have been working on a larger, more powerful rocket. Could they be secretly planning a mission this year to land men on the moon? Will they get there first?
Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space, is a computer simulation of man's greatest adventure, the race to the moon. It recreates all the excitement of every space mission using digitized footage from lift-offs, space walks, lunar landings and splashdowns.
As Space Director, you have at your disposal the entire space inventories of both the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R., and can plan and direct every conceivable space mission: sub-orbitals; orbital manned and unmanned; planetary and lunar flybys; lem tests; lunar passes; lunar orbits; and lunar landings.
You get to recruit and train over 140 astronauts and cosmonauts and determine which ones have the "right stuff". You determine which space hardware to research and develop and then you actually schedule and launch individual space missions.
Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space offers twenty different approaches to the moon. Do you follow history or do you cut your own path to glory? Will the United States land on the moon first? Or will the Russians continue to dominate space and plant the red flag on lunar soil first?
