In a mocking article that trumpets how "America bungled many legs of the space race in the early 1960s with bad planning, hare-brained schemes and inept spying," it would have been nice to avoid the bad research, hare-brained technical errors, and inept editing and fact-checking of the 'Newsweek' staff responsible for this really pitiable essay. The biggest howler is that these stories 'have never been reported before', which merely illustrates the staff's cultural isolation and inability to efficiently use Internet search engines. The only 'original' aspects of the material are the fantasy elements apparently added from the author's imagination to the long-released Lunik 'kidnapping' story, such as the presence of Soviet guards, or the use of its results in the NASA lunar program. Sad.
