Sputnik 1 - Beep Beep by TrillianAstra Sputnik 1 - Beep Beep by TrillianAstra
Sputnik 1, the first man-made object to orbit the Earth, launched 50 years ago today, 4th October 1957, by the USSR, designed by the brilliant Sergei Korolev.

I did make myself some nice Sputnik earrings to wear today ;)


One of the greatest achievements of mankind; the world hasn't been the same since.

I like that metal look.
So I wasn't the only one, who painted something especially for this date =)

Thanks :) I wanted to keep it simple, I thought about painting the Earth as well, but I think it looks good just on black, as if it's the only thing there, which it was.
Krushchev's son... That'd be interesting, I really need to learn Russian though!

:giggle: Yeah, it's very wonderful and simple... I mean, sputnik itself was simple, so paintings of it should be too?? :heart:
