|#49 - Would you look at that. That isn't your first robot on the moon. [+] (32 new replies)||04/28/2013 on Murica||+10|

Oh, and what happened to Sputnik 1? It was burned in the atmosphere 3 months after it was launched.
#355 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
You wanna list up all the breakthroughs in space exploration? Ok
First liquid fuel long range rocket: Germany
First jet-airplane: Nazi Germany
First object in space: Soviet
First animal in space: Soviet
First man in space: Soviet
First woman in space: Soviet
First object in orbit around the sun: Soviet (Although accidental)
First object on the moon: Soviet
First robot on the moon: Soviet
First space station: Soviet
First human on the moon: USA
First object on Mars: Soviet
First object outside the solar system: USA
And if it hadn't been for the political unstability resulting in the fall of the USSR, they would probably still be beating your ass. Oh, yeah, their bombs we're bigger than yours, too :)

First reusable spacecraft: USA
First space telescope: USA
First year in space: USSR
First man made object beyond asteroid belt: USA
First man made object to orbit Saturn: USA
First object to orbit a planet (excluding earth): USA
We did a bit more than you are giving us credit for

First reusable spacecraft: I'll give you this one, although many scientists believe that the idea of a reusable spacecraft has cost more lives than single use crafts would have.
First space telescope: Hubble telescope, launched 1990, after the fall of the USSR. Not really an amazing feat, just 'another' satellite. A great one none the less.
First man made object beyond asteroid belt: Yup, you threw your ball a bit further than what's been done before. Not that the USSR couldn't, they just had their eyes on something else.
First man made object to orbit Saturn: Yes, you are right. First object to orbit the sun: Luna 1, first object to orbit the moon: Luna 10, first object to orbit Mars: Mars 2. First object to orbit Venus: Venera.
First object to orbit another planet: Yes, Mariner 9 was the first to orbit Mars, but as said above: First object to actually orbit something else than earth: Luna 1. You didn't invent the systems needed for orbiting planets, USSR did.

The USA independently invented obit technology (the USA and USSR didn't collaborate very often) Messenger is the first to orbit mercury, Galileo the first to orbit Jupiter, Voyager 2 the only spacecraft to directly observe both Neptune and Uranus. New horizons is on its way to Pluto. Oh, and as a side note, there is a very small chance that the first manmade object in space may have been a blast cap during operation plumbbob.
P.s. I am thoroughly enjoying learning about all of this. And I completely understand where you are coming from. Both the USA and the USSR have made monumental advances in space exploration.
#358 - killyojoy (04/29/2013) [-]
We had missles that were far more advanced the only reason Russia made their bombs so much bigger is because they were far more inaccurate then our bombs our idea was to put small nukes in tactical places while russia just wanted to blow up cities in hopes of hitting tactical places....also it looks like we still came out the winners because we are still intact, while they blew their budget before anything could even happen..
#360 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
When i say big bombs, i mean thermonuclear h-bombs. This isn't a tactical nuke, this is a 'Level the entire city of New York with the ground' bomb. There is no need for precision bombing, no matter how small of a yield you stuff in them.
The fact that you are still intact does not mean you won the space race. All along the way the Soviet Union were beating your sad asses, and simply because the soviets focused on robotics instead of humans in space, you decided that getting to the moon first with humans were the goal. Really, putting a man on the moon was pretty irrelevant. It was proof that YOU could do it, but not proof that it could be done.
"We had missles that were far more advanced" As i'm not quite sure about this, I must request a source.
#356 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
Russia (USSR) got to the moon waaay before the United States of America. They just sent robots instead of people, just like what you're doing on Mars right now.
Also, the space race was mainly military. It was a showoff between the USA and the USSR. Whomever could build spacecrafts capable of getting nuclear weapons into space would win. The real finish line would have been a combat station in space. Of course, the USSR fell before that could happen.
#221 - anonymous poster (04/28/2013) [-]
And who decided it was the finish line? Let me guess, Americans? You won nothing, you just told you won it because you're big babies.
#184 - anonymous poster (04/28/2013) [-]
I can understand that some peeps in the world dosen't belive that the sun is a star, but some of them think that space does not exist? I fear for the next generation...
#198 - anonymous poster (04/28/2013) [-]
okay.....what phrase would you use?
#326 - anonymous poster (04/28/2013) [-]
But those wern't manmade.
#334 - anonymous poster (04/28/2013) [-]
Didn't see that, He just made a mistake in his wording. Your reply was just the same as the people who turn an argument into a spelling bee.
#313 - anonymous poster (04/28/2013) [-]
i mean, in a technical sense you're right, but in a way that is silly and irrelevant.

"Origin of the Christmas Tree
No article about Christmas is complete without some explanation of the “Christmas tree.” We have touched on it without directly focusing on it. The modern Christmas tree originated in Germany. But the Germans got it from the Romans, who got it from the Babylonians and the Egyptians."
Christians stole it from the Germans who learned it from the Romans, who culturally took it from the Babylonians and the Egyptians.

#167 - crilleballe (03/23/2013) [-]
BTW, there is no rule stating whether or not you should use implied multiplication.
Also, if you actually type the multiplication sign, then implied multiplication is overwritten.
Ex. if the problem had been: 6 / 2 * ( 1 + 2 ) = x (The multiplication sign being key)
Then the only correct answer would be 3.
