the launch of Sputnik 1, Russia and America continually compete against one another in the exploration of space. The idea of exploring a new frontier intrigued the citizens of both countries. The race to achieve the first successful launch into space created the institution of two independent space programs, the Soviet Space Program and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Since their origins, the agencies contrasted in mission procedures, construction, and view of space’s applications

Introduction The Apollo 11 lunar landing in 1969 was the culmination of a decade-long space race to the Moon between the United States and Soviet Russia. More than a feat of technical know-how and astronautic daring, the Apollo 11 mission represented a triumph for the United States: Neil Armstrong and his men were like Christopher Columbus and his crew. Their successful landing and return meant American hegemony in outer space and peace and security for U. S. citizens who had been unnerved by the Soviets'

A Japanese garden was visible through sliding-glass doors. We ate ham and roast-beef sandwiches, and drank Molson Ice beers. Henderson bit into a sandwich and chewed thoughtfully. Then he said, "Often, you get a worried look on your face, with the first signs of rash. We speak of the 'worried face' of smallpox. That face
This example demonstrates how group dynamics can influence the behavior of group members even when emotional levels are not high.

absolutes apply to OB. Laws in the physical sciences—chemistry, astronomy, physics—are consistent and apply in a wide range of situations. They allow scientists to generalize about the pull of gravity or to be confident about sending astronauts into space to repair satellites. But as a noted behavioral researcher observed, “God gave all the easy problems to the physicists.” Human beings are complex, and few, if any, simple and universal principles explain organizational behavior. Because we are not
