Sputnik 1, 1/2 Scale Model Assembled by Fred Koschara

Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite successfully placed in orbit around the Earth, was launched on an R-7 (ICBM) booster from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 4 October 1957 at 10:28:04 pm, Moscow time. Today, the fourth of October 2017, is the 60th anniversary of that historic event.

For all you citizens of the L5 Nation, this is one of our National Holidays. Celebrate it in an appropriate manner!
