  1. The day the Soviets won the space race.

    It’s the tortoise vs hare story, it’s obvious who’s the winner now.

  3. MaJieMao says:

    Yeah Russia is the winner the US shuttle fleet is retired and we have nothing ready to send to space so the Russians are doing all the international space station work.

  4. lol I was thinking about the opposite direction. Russian reached space first, but US got the moon and etc., and I thought Russian has done nothing much besides maintaining the space station.

    I guess it’s hard to say who has won the race… besides, the race is still going on, it’s an ultra long marathon.

    Some doubt we even went to the moon, but either way getting to the moon was pointless cause it held no value whatsoever, so I think the Soviets were smarter for not wasting their time.
