    Default Space Race Mafia - Day 4 - Project Apollo (2/6/2013)

    Welcome rocket scientists, to the Space Race!


    In the wake of World War Two, tensions quickly began to mount between the world's two superpowers, the United States and the Soviet Union. With the development of nuclear weapons, both sides were able to threaten one another with total annihilation, giving rise to the Cold War. During this time, as a result of such a threat, aerospace technology increased extremely rapidly as both sides needed ways to both deliver a nuclear weapon and defend against them.

    As the Cold War progressed, both sides recognized the importance of the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon without having to use an aircraft. The solution was a small competition between cruise missiles (missiles that use lift to fly to their targets) and ballistic missiles (missiles that are sent to their targets using a parabolic trajectory). Ballistic missiles were deemed more practical for long distances, so suddenly rocket technology became a top priority of both governments.

    In the mid 1950s, both sides were underway working on their own intercontinental ballistic missile. The United States was working on their Atlas rocket, and the Soviet Union was working on the R-7 Semyorka. Both rockets were tasked with carrying a thermonuclear warhead half way around the world. However, the Atlas only had to carry the Americans' efficient 4-5 ton bomb, while the R-7 had to carry the Soviets' bulky 20 ton bomb.

    In August of 1957, the R-7 became the first intercontinental ballistic missile to be successfully tested. Because it was designed to carry such a large payload, it was relatively easy for them to simply put a metal ball with a transmitter on board and launch it into orbit. They did just that on October 4, 1957. The initial reaction in the Soviet Union to the first artificial satellite was underwhelming. It was given a small article in the state newspapers, and went by virtually unnoticed at first. However, the next day upon realizing the strong reactions from the west, this achievement was given the headlines it deserved. The space race had officially begun...
