A great post on WebUrbanist covering monuments to the space race in both the USA and the USSR. These monuments are only partly about the astronauts and cosmonauts. They’re also testaments to the technology that put them up there, and the society which embraced that technology and made it happen. “We are what we celebrate”, indeed.
