A generation lost in space
The Space Race took place in the 60s and people loved it.
People were obsessed with the idea of reaching the moon, and in 1969 America did just that.
David Bowie released the single “Space Oddity” to coincide with the moon landing. It is about an astronaut who cuts off contact with Earth and drifts through space.
