The book chronicles how, with their influence, science fiction evolved from adventure stories in space to serious predictors and influencers on the modern world, as well as the beginning development of fan culture, which was surprisingly similar to today's, and their ideas' influences on society as a whole (particularly, a long fascinating look into early Scientology).

This is a timeline of first achievements in spaceflight from the first intercontinental ballistic missile through the first multinational human-crewed mission-spanning the era of the Space Race. Two days after the United States announced its intention to launch an artificial satellite, on July 31, 1956, the Soviet Union announced its intention to do the same. Sputnik 1 was launched on October 4, 1957, beating the United States and stunning people all over the world.

The Space program of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, best known as the Soviet space program, was the national space program of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) actived from 1930s until disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Soviet Union's space program was mainly based on the cosmonautic exploration of space and the development of the expandable launch vehicles, which had been split between many design bureaus competing against each other.

His first book was Race into Space (Ellis Horwood,1988), a history of the Soviet space program. This was followed by other books for Praxis on the Russian space program, including the most recent Russian Space Probes, coauthored by Olga Zakutnyaya. Harvey has written three histories of the Chinese space program, with one currently awaiting publication, and has also written histories of the European, Japanese and Indian space programs. He contributed a chapter to Dominic Phelan's Space Sleuths book, and most recently, a chapter on the Cosmos 5 mission was published in the Yuri Galperin 80 years memorial volume by the Academy of Sciences in Moscow.

Sending the first women into space isn’t the same as developing an astronaut program . We cannot allow that the first woman in space will be American, Kamanin wrote in his journal

Sending the first women into space isn’t the same as developing an astronaut program that values equality. But the Soviet Union netted another kind of victory, according to a recent story in The New York Times: The Soviets won the space race for equality. The story points out that after the Soviet Union made Yuri Gagarin the first man in space in 1961, the government sent the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit around Earth. We cannot allow that the first woman in space will be American, Kamanin wrote in his journal. This would be an insult to the patriotic feelings of Soviet women.

Riding a tide of successes in space, the Soviet Union set out to achieve the next logical accomplishment: putting a man into orbit. On April 12, 1961, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin circled Earth one time in a Vostok spacecraft before ejecting 23,000 feet above the planet and parachuting safely down. Gagarin’s flight was the shortest manned mission in space history, lasting just 108 minutes from takeoff to touchdown.
