How Is It Parallelled?

The Cold War put the world's two great powers at the time, the U.S. and Soviet Union, against each other and caused much tension as they were each worried about the other side attacking or making improvements that could be used to attack.

The space race was a major part of the Cold War, which showed the tension and attitude of the time. Each power was trying to outdo the other and intimidate each other without directly stating that they are competing, it was a silent competition based on who had the most achievements and power.
