Also, don't miss the rocket that was supposed to make the Saturn V look small, which was cancelled because of lack of funds or interest in the United States: The little-known Nova rocket.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nova_(rocket)

For instance, Martin's smallest design, the 1B, used fourteen F-1s in the first stage and had a LEO payload of 662,000 lb, over three times that of the Saturn V.
Whoa!

Yes, it is sad. And the Buran should have been given a chance, too

Yes, quite sad. The Buran never flew with anyone on board. It did make a fully automated flight and landing, though, which is something the Shuttle has never achieved.

Both the U.S. and the Soviets were too interested in their militaries. The U.S. was stuck in Vietnam, while the Soviets were stuck with a huge external empire (the Warsaw Pact) as well as an internal one, as well as trying to compete with the U.S. militarily. Both nations ultimately failed -- the U.S. lost the Vietnam War and the Soviets lost their empires.

Stupid humans!

Yes that is very sad. Just imagine where we could be now, when the USA had continued its space program after the moon landing with the same effort they spent in the 60s.

On the other hand the collapse offered the possibility that now both sides have the unique chance to work together as partners instead of rivals (ISS).
