The era of the 60’s – a true flowering of the Soviet Union, the peak power of the Soviet state and the people. The post-war devastation was overcome in record time, but the euphoria and pride of the Great Victory is still felt by every Soviet citizen. The apotheosis of the achievements of the Soviet system was the space program, launch of the first in the history of mankind artificial Earth satellite and the first manned flight into space.
