#ThrowbackDataThursday Choose Your Own DataViz Adventure
This week, we have two related datasets, to be used as you see fit. The first is a listing of manned space missions. The second is a listing of Astronauts/Cosmonauts. The files can be joined together on Mission (note that the Crew file includes a Launch Mission, and a Return Mission which may differ for some Astronauts. Join your data carefully.
A really quick write up this week. Coming out of World War II, the race for military dominance had shifted to space. The United States and the Soviet Union began a series of space missions that would officially be kicked off by the Soviet's launch of Sputnik and culminated with the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon. This week's dataset looks at a subset of space history, focusing on manned space missions.
We'd really love to see what you can do with this week's dataset! Download the data and see what you can do. Create your viz and post your work to Tableau Public and Twitter with the hashtag #ThrowbackDataThursday, tagging @TThrowbackThurs.
