60th anniversary of first artificial satellite launch

60th anniversary of first artificial satellite launch 

Human history changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I. The world's first artificial satellite was about the size of a beach ball and weighed only 83.6 kg. It took about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path. That launch ushered in new political, military, technological, and scientific developments. While the Sputnik launch was a single event, it marked the start of the space age and the U.S.-U.S.S.R space race. Moreover, it was the first step of humankind into space exploration

De fato, este evento marcou tanto a humanidade que se ele não ocorresse nós poderíamos estar neste momento em outra situação outra era! Pena que muitos utilizam os avanços científicos para coisas escusas em benefício de poucos.

In fact, this event marked so much humanity that if it did not occur we could be at this time in another situation another era! It's a pity that many use scientific advances for excuses for the benefit of the few.
