A substance from Earth that would carry man into space...
How did charcoal, one of the key ingredients in gunpowder, alter the course of warfare and make it possible for us to build giant structures in space? This question, and many more like it, are answered in this thrilling historical story.
Join Chet Riley and his grandfather as they relive the story of the Space Race -- an event that was contested by the two greatest powers on Earth, and involved some of the most brilliant and inventive minds the world has ever seen.
From gunpowder in ancient China, to inventions in Russia and the United States of America, the story of the Space Race is one that takes the reader all over the world... and beyond!
Suitable for readers of all ages, Space Race combines beautiful artwork and a gripping story.


"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature."

— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
