After Yuri Gegarin was the first man in space, and the Americans "trip" to the moon, the Russians were asked why they hadn't tried to go to the moon. There response was that it was not possible for a person to pass the Val Hallas (excuse the spelling) radiation belt between the moon or earth. The amount of lead protection required made the lift-off impossible. Yet apollo 11 was only a couple of mm thick, and not lead.
