'The Ultimate Space Race'
21 June 2022 3 mins 50s
Ready steady go.
by Andrew MacGregor

The space race lasted for over two decades, but this endearing animated film tells the story in under four minutes. Ample abbreviations help—"The USSR accepted the USA's request for a USR (Ultimate Space Race)"—as director Jake Wegesin hurtles from Sputnik 1's launch in 1955 to the Apollo 11 mission in 1969.

Key players such as Laika the dog and Yuri Gagarin appear, as do the myriad "unmanned and undogged" launches that preceded Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins's successful trip. We like how the latter is described as a boon for both science and conspiracy theorists.

Viewers are then told that the conclusion of the space race brought about world peace. Proper historians know that that only happened in 1985 when Rocky Balboa beat Ivan Drago.
