An insider's view into the U.S.-Russian space program With great fanfare, the 36-year game of one-upsmanship known as the Space Race officially ended in 1993, and in its place the U.S.-Russian space alliance was born. But beneath all the official rhetoric of a bold new era of space exploration, the ""marriage made in the heavens"" has been plagued from the start by misunderstandings, suspicion, high-level chicanery, and outright official lies that threaten to drag down the alliance and the space programs of several other nations. In Star-Crossed Orbits, space veteran and bestselling author James Oberg combines riveting personal memoir with top-notch investigative journalism to tell the complete untold story of the U.S.-Russian space alliance. With unparalleled access to official Russian archives, facilities, and key individuals associated with the Russian space program, he describes the strengths and weaknesses that each side of the alliance brings to the table. And he reveals for the first time the full story of Russia's decaying space program and how it ultimately was saved from collapse by Western funds.
