Happy birthday, Sputnik….

04 Oct

….which was launched into space fifty years ago, making it the first man-made object in orbit.

I seem to recall a Trivial Pursuit question along the lines of “What was Time Magazine’s quotation of the year in 1957, and who said it?”  To which the answer was, of course, “Beep – Sputnik I.”  That could be totally not true at all, but I sort of hope it is, so I’m leaving it up here.
