The Second Space Race was a massive collaborative effort to reach Humanity to the local solar system. Unlike the previous space race, which happened from 1957 CE to 1969 CE, this new one did not involve much competition. It involved the nation states of The United States of America, and The Russian Federation. Both nations did their own segment of space travel, which both involved breaching the layers of what used to be impossible. Russia had programs for Saturn and Neptune, and the US had programs for Jupiter and Uranus.
