254 6/24/2019 7:18:00 PM Turn 7 USSR Message The text of "One Small Step" reads, "If you are behind on the Space Race track, play this card to move your marker two boxes forward on the Space Race Track, gaining the VP value of the second box only."

The USSR space marker started in the second box (behind yours in the third box) and then progressed two spaces into the fourth box which has 2/1, which means I get 2 VPs. Isn't that correct?
