Carmen Sandiego Wiki

The Space Race is the eighteenth case in the adventure game Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time.



"You're headed for the early 1960s, in Star City, USSR. Yuri Gagarin is supposed to be blasting off as the first man in space, but there's a problem: he's not on board his rocket! There's got to be a very clever criminal behind this!

Ivan Idea will be your Good Guide for this case. I hope the two of you can connect with the cosmonaut, and make the countdown happen! 3... 2... 1... Good luck!" -- The Chief


  • Run a flight simulation on the Mission Control computer

Carmen Notes[]

Sorry, Time Inspector, but I couldn’t hang around.
I’ve left the Chronoskimmer, in a flying lost-and-found.
I reason you deserve a chance, to find the thing, of course.
I’d recommend you take a peek Near Yuri’s main fueling source!

"Excellent work! Not only did you get Yuri out into space on time, but you retrieved ACME's most important crime-fighting device, the Chronoskimmer! For that, I'm proud to promote you to the highest rank a Time Pilot can achieve! You are now...a Time Sleuth! Ta-da!

But there's no time for basking in your glory. Carmen is still out there, traveling the Time Tunnels. And until she's locked away, history won't be safe! Your next case will be your biggest. Chasing Carmen herself. Say you'll take it right now!" -- The Chief
