October 4, 1957, saw the dawn of the space age. As the wire report from Moscow stated, "Russia announced today it has sent the world's first artificial moon streaking around the globe 560 miles (900 kilometres) out in space." It was the height of the Cold War; the world was electrified. In fact some Western experts said the satellite couldn't be seen from Earth.
Obviously nothing much has changed in fifty years; you can’t believe nothing you hear in October.
