A Civilization advance.
Following the launch of Sputnik on October 4, 1954, the race into space began in earnest. The science of rocketry had advanced to the point where direct exploration of space became possible. Space flight advanced rapidly from simple, sub-orbital flights to manned missions to Luna, Earth's moon. Today, despite balky governments and occasional setbacks, foresighted humans continue to push for manned space stations and more exploration missions, to guarantee that we will become a spacefaring species.
