      The United States had reached Mars by J , when Mariner 4 flew wit km (6, mi) of the planet taking twenty-one close-up pictures. These photographs dashed the hopes of many that life might be present on Mars, for these first close‑up images of Mars showed a cratered, lunar‑like surface. The Cold War-inspired "space race" and "Moon race" between the Soviet Union and the United States of America accelerated with a focus on the Moon. This included many scientifically important firsts, such as the first photographs of the then-unseen far side of the Moon in by the Soviet Union, and culminated with the landing of the first humans on the Moon in , widely seen around the.

He chronicles his travels to the secret Soviet nuclear laboratory in Chelyabinsk with Edward Teller, the inventor of the hydrogen bomb and hot air balloon flights on a Soviet airfield in Lithuania. These adventures were undertaken to advance the idea of the United States and Russia leading a world effort to explore Mars together.

Because the United States and U.S.S.R. agreed to share the results of NASA’s Pioneer Venus mission in and the Soviet Venera missions, scientists and space experts on both sides placed enormous symbolic and scientific value on the results of these joint efforts.

Some of the missions were flybys, gathering information in brief bursts. beat the United States to Mars. The author's account gives, for the first time, the personal feelings of those managing the projects.

The first project was begun in During the next 15 years, the United States had put humans on the Moon, and the Soviet Union had put a cosmonaut in space and circled the Moon with a satellite.
