AGENDA ITEM: Space Race

The Historical Committee offers one of the most intimate and crisis-oriented committees, promising thrilling simulations, refreshing diversity, and tight-knit environments. In this committee, delegates are emulating the fast-paced and unpredictable challenges allowing delegates to work with a group of passionate peers to tackle these issues. 

In this conference, we are issuing the space race. The Space Race was a 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), to achieve firsts in space flight capability. Nowadays, even the third world countries are trying to participate in this race. The Space Race led to pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, unscrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
