With massive resources being poured into acquiring an effective (and subsequently superior) nuclear missile system, ideological challenges by scientists like Lysenko were disregarded or suppressed. Rocketry experts and physicists languishing in taiga gulags were rapidly 'rehabilitated', or organised into NKVD research and development camps.
