The Soviets briefly were ahead of the US in the “space race” and took maximum propaganda mileage from it.
I want a dose of whatever this guy is on:
Even the welder with the stick-welder gets in on building spacecraft!
Sputnik was a tremendous accomplishment. The Soviets went from a huge agricultural economy to a nuclear/air/space race, in no time at all. And they didn’t have the benefit of a bunch of nazi scientists, they figured a lot of it out themselves. Sure, some was stolen, but it’s American propaganda that they did not innovate (Kurchatov’s “layer cake” design for the first fusion-pumped atomic weapons was a huge innovation)
“Son, someday this will all be yours!”
The world needs Soviet-style propaganda posters about Russian hacker skills. “Our hackers are the best!” “Nothing can stop us!” My sad art skills are not good enough to produce such things.
There is a great collection of Star Wars propaganda posters, some of which are excellent, here [pinterest] There are also good collections of Elite Dangerous propaganda posters. I love this stuff!
