Soviet Space Culture : Cosmic Enthusiasm in Socialist Societies Hardback

Edited by Eva Maurer, Julia Richers, Monica Ruthers, Carmen Scheide


Starting with the first man-made satellite 'Sputnik' in 1957 and culminating four years later with the first human in space, Yuri Gagarin, space became a new utopian horizon.

This book explores the profound repercussions of the Soviet space exploration program on culture and everyday life in Eastern Europe, especially in the Soviet Union itself.
