Sputnik 1 Was Launched 50 Years Ago Today

Fortunately, Harvard professors had the situation covered. That's a good thing, since the satellite was launched in haste when a Soviet plan to develop a rocket that could strike the US with a hydrogen bomb ran into trouble.

In other news, the head of NASA thinks that China will land people on the Moon sooner than the US will.
