50 Years of Space

Sputnik

Fifty years ago today the world changed. Sputnik 1 was the first man-made object to circle the earth. The 4th October 1957 saw the birth of the space race, a change in political dynamic across the world, and a whole new generation of engineers beginning to dream. It was the beginning of a 15 year period that saw us send men to the moon. Pretty significant, don’tcha think?

Kudos to the Russians for getting there first.

Lots of coverage, including a Google logo. Have a read…
