During the Space Race the United States was trying to beat other countries to find the first space carrier that would take them to the moon. The U.S. really did not want the Soviet Union to beat them. This was just like the Cold War when the U.S and Soviet Union were having the Arms Race. They were both trying to build the first bomb. Both events was the U.S. versus the Soviet Union. Without both of these we would not have a lot of the technologies that we have such as war weapons and knowledge about space, which are both very important to the United States.
