In the USSR, the Space Race was about more than just scientific achievement. The Communist Party viewed space exploration as necessary to protect the motherland from space militarisation, fearing the West would somehow wage war against them from above the Earth. To spread this message, the government used propaganda posters like the one shown on the Militarisation of Space USSR T-shirt. The white lettering on this navy blue 100 per cent ring spun cotton tee reads, "Let's put a stop to space militarisation," and the red stripes, white stars and white bombs are meant to symbolize the flag of Russia's competitor in the Space Race, the United States.
