In Space We Trust was originally featured in the 11-17-2017 Scout Report. Since then, this intriguing project remains an engaging and highly visual way to learn about the history of space exploration.
On October 4, 1957, Sputnik 1 was launched into space, marking the beginning of the Space Age. In Space We Trust is an interactive timeline and art project dedicated to the recent history of space exploration. This project invites visitors to "travel" along with a timeline of the Space Age, accompanied by a soundtrack composed by Alexander Ananiev. Along the way, one will encounter descriptions of pivotal events and can click on each event to learn more. These events include Yuri Gagarin's orbit around Earth in 1961, the 1964 Mariner 4 mission to Mars, Apollo 11's 1969 mission to the moon, the 1974 Pioneer 10 mission to Jupiter, and the recent Cassini-Huygens Mission (2004-2017). In Space We Trust received support from Russian space agency Roscosmos and garnered a Webby Award for Best User Experience.
