Sputnik - October 4, 1957

By Rebecca Price Janney, Oct 3 2019 12:17PM

"October Sky" is one of my favorite movies. Have you ever seen it? Based on the book by Homer Hickam, the film tells the story of the night his world changed. On October 4, 1957 the Russians launched Sputnik, the first space satellite, and Americans were afraid, very afraid. But they were also inspired. My podcast is about that epochal event.


Please share any memories, or let me know if you've seen "October Sky."
