Abstract

Unlike the American space program, whose military and civilian components were split with the formation of NASA in 1958, the Soviet space program remained firmly rooted in the missile program from which it originated in the 1950s and remained an institutional arm of the defense industry. Therefore, the distinction between military and civilian space projects was much more blurred than in the United States, which was also evident in the management of the Energiya—Buran program
