Space Race[edit]

Last week's COTW is it ready for featured status? Davodd 18:29, Oct 1, 2004 (UTC)

Too much coverage of the specific accomplishments, and not enough on the impact and importance of the space race itself, or at least that is overshadowed too much. For ex. I don't see anything about Star wars and the Soviet objections to it, the general scientific breakthroughs that were made as a result of the space race and how they impacted so many areas of daily life not directly related to space. Also about the space race in the popular conscience is not covered. Save the cheerleader, save the world. The tables of achievements are way too distracting from where the focus of this article should be. They are good and should be kept in other articles about space achievements, but not here. - Taxman 14:10, 2 Oct, 2004 (UTC)
