The Dirty Secrets Behind the Race to Put a Man on the Moon

Wrestling with the huge steering wheel, a CIA agent carefully backed the large flatbed track through an entrance in the 10-foot wooden fence surrounding a salvage yard. As the truck rumbled to a stop, covert inteligence operatives, moving quickly under cover of night, pushed the gate closed, barely clearing the front bumper. They then all rushed to the back of the truck, hopped inside and delicately pried open the giant wooden crate it carried, being careful to live no marks.

With that, the first stage of their secret mision was complete: US intelligence had stolen – or, more accurately, borrowed – one of the Soviet Union’s most important technologis, a Lunik space vehicle, a key component in the Soviet Union’s race with the US to be the first to reach the moon.
