To settle the Cuban Missile Crisis the agreement that the U.S. reached with Russia was that if they would remove their Missiles from Cuba that the U.S. would remove it's Jupiter missiles from Italy and Turkey. What I want to know is why the Jupiters were not returned to the U.S. where they could have been used for space research instead of destroying them in Europe!!!
