Let me first say that I am honored by your attention to my humble post and want to thank you for the great info. I suppose I still have much studying
to do. I had always found it strange that much of the Russian endeavors are rarely talked about here in the states.
Have you ever read "Rocketship Galileo" by Robert A. Heinlein?
It's a story of American astronauts who land on the moon and find out they're not a lone. As a child I was disappointed by the fact that the
"other beings" on the moon turned out to be Russians but in hindsight it was a good book by one of my favorite authors.
To answer your question, I do believe there was some cooperation between the US and Russia during the Space Race. I mean, it wasn't as if the two
countries were incommunicado since they had direct phone lines to each other. The Russians were probably able to monitor everything we were doing and
More importantly, if the existence of ETI/EBE was a well known fact between the two countries it would make it even more probable that there would've
been some kind of cooperation.
Plus, the Cold War was so full of lies and propaganda it's hard to believe anything we're told about that time.
I suppose I'm off to search the net and study some more. Would you happen to be privy to knowledge of the Russian moon missions I won't find on
Thanks again John!
Edit to add: Ok, so no Soviet ever walked on the moon, according to history. I checked here for the whole time line of Soviet Manned Lunar missions
and didn't find any evidence that they actually walked on the moon. Turns out they had crappy rockets. The time line is here:
Russian Space Web
The weird thing is, I swear I once saw a stamp depicting a cosmonaut on the moon, full suit and all, holding the soviet flag. It had a bunch of
Cyrillic writting I couldn't decipher. I saw it on the back of a matchbook, I wish I had scanned it when I saw it. Perhaps just CW era propaganda?
