American-Russian rivalry

The development of Naka came to NASA, and allocated a huge budget for it came as a direct response from the American administration to the Soviet Union launching its first satellite into space, and the American administration considered that this is a great challenge to its strength, as both America and the Soviet Union lived

An American company intends to build a port for space tourism in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates, called the Space Port, and the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah will pay half the cost for this project.
