Astrospies!- Spy Image of the Week

The Astrospies!! Quick, to the Moonraker!

Ok, get ready for the coolest spy concept ever – Astrospies!!!

NOVA just aired a program about how the military was training pilots to orbit the earth and spy on Russia in the mid-1960’s. It’s a bit more hype than anything, the program never put anyone in space, but the idea is awesome.

What this program does do is highlight the paranoia and fear that the thought of the Soviets beating the US to space caused.

Check out the Astrospies site.
