Colossal economic resources were invested into these projects, and millions of people participated in them. However, a well-organized system of secrecy, which had endured until recently, prevented an assessment of how much more difficult and costly it was than the Moon race. The majority of those involved weren’t even aware of what a potentially lethal game they had been drawn into. Unlike the millions who toiled on the home front during World War II, these workers were unwitting of their cause.

The 1960 scenario called for the use of electrical rocket engines and a nuclear reactor as power sources. OKB-1 formed a special subdivision for this field of work. In 1965, studies began on a project for an expedition to Mars using the N-1 launch vehicle. The Mars expedition complex was supposed to have been assembled in near-Earth orbit by means of several launches of the N-1 launch vehicle. Dozens of scientific-research institutes, design bureaus, and institutes of higher learning were enlisted to develop the nuclear power plants for the heavy interplanetary spacecraft.
