Sputnik Launch

Today marks the 60th anniversary of the launch of the first artificial satellite Sputnik.

Studying Systems Engineering at the University of Lagos, we had to take a course that mentioned this. For that time period of the cold war, the launch of Sputnik sent in the United States.

Its launch heightened fears in the United States of Russia developing weapons capabilities to attack the United States from space.

It would also lead to the formation of NASA.
