I was in a Military Intelligence unit in the '70s. Got a briefing from a team that travelled to the USSR to design the Apollo/Soyuz interface.
They said the Russians could never catch up to us. Not a technology issue, a communication issue. Ask a question in the USSR, the KGB wants to know
why you want to know.
Our tech manuals are written to facilitate learning and comprehension. Theirs were written to conceal state secrets.
Can't form a team if you can't trust your teammates. Can't collaborate when you can't communicate.
