60 Years of Sputnik (October 4, 1957)
On October 4, 1957 the USSR creates an international sensation by launching the first artificial earth satellite into the orbit. With an enormous speed of eight km per second the 60 cm small „Sputnik“—Russian for fellow traveler—orbits the blue planet at an altitude of 900 km. The nitrogen filled aluminum sphere is equipped with a radio transmitter, which constantly emits signals to indicate the pressure and temperature and which amateur radio operators all over the world are able to receive.
“Sputnik” is the Soviet contribution to the “international geophysical year” and was actually only a makeshift version. After US-President Eisenhower had announced the development of an artificial moon, the Soviet Union immediately announced a similar project. Originally the USSR wanted to launch a large satellite with a mass of 1,500 kg that would carry a considerable amount of scientific instruments. Afraid that it wouldn’t be ready in time and not wanting to yield to the USA, the Soviet Union ends up constructing a simple interim solution within just a few weeks—the “Sputnik.”
Its launch shocks the international press—not only does the USSR show that it is at least on par with the US space program but the satellite’s launcher was proof that it had an intercontinental missile, i.e. that it was capable of sending a nuclear war head to US territory. Just one month later, while the Americans still struggled with their own satellite program, the USSR sends “Sputnik 2” into space, carrying the dog Laika. The USA’s first launch attempt in December of 1957 failed. In January 1958 their first satellite “Explorer 1” finally reaches its orbit.
