As part of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, the "space race" competition is one of the most interesting periods in human history. It was also the most wholesome and least violent aspect about the Cold War. In other areas of the conflict, armies were fighting over whether countries would be communist or capitalist, stockpiling nuclear weapons, and doing all sorts of dangerous things. With the space race, all they did was to try to see who had the best technology in space.
