The Cold War and its effect on the space race.
Transcript of The Cold War and its effect on the space race.
What was The Cold War?
The Cold War is the name given to the relationship that developed primarily between the USA and the USSR after World War Two. The Cold War was to dominate international affairs for decades and many major crises occurred - the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, Hungary and the Berlin Wall being just some. For many, the growth in weapons of mass destruction was the most worrying issue.
What is the difference between the space race and The Cold War?
The Space Race is related to the Cold War because between 1957 and 1975, the Cold War rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union focused on attaining firsts in space exploration, which were seen as necessary for national security and symbolic of technological and ideological superiority.
The Space Race was a mid-to-late 20th century competition between the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US) for supremacy in space exploration. Between 1957 and 1975, the Cold War rivalry between the two nations focused on attaining firsts in space exploration, which were seen as necessary for national security and symbolic of technological and ideological superiority.
It provided a civilized forum for competition, and it eventually lead to communication and understand, as scientists met at conferences, shared information, and eventually even collaborated. I believe the space race helped keep the cold war from escalating. It gave the United States and USSR a chance to prove their superiority over each other without requiring combat, and by 1975 they were even working together on the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project.
