Why Didn't The Soviets Ever Make It To The Moon?

Post by Riddick » 07-24-2019 12:21 AM

When Apollo 11 touched down on the moon in July 1969, the Space Race was won. At the time, the USSR's space missions were kept secret, and the US didn't know their plans and progress until after the fact, so there was some suspense about Russians beating us to the moon.

It was assumed the risk and expense of coming in second was not worth it to the USSR, but that's only a small part of why the Soviet Union never landed on the moon. As the long-buried details have come out, we now know for a fact they were never even close to getting there first. FULL STORY
