50th Anniversary of Seattle World's Fair

The 1962 Seattle World's Fair was about the future century. Especially the future of transportation. It was the year President Kennedy vowed to put an American on the moon before the end of the decade. That year we put the first telecommunications satellite, Telestar, into orbit. The space race captured the nation's imagination and produced a generation of science, technology, and engineering graduates to meet the challenges of the future. The Space Needle, built for the World's Fair, is still Seattle's icon. And the US Science Pavillion, with its white arches, is now the Pacific Science Center, which continues to bring science to the public.
