Sputnik 1 in orbit, animation
Contemporary animation of the orbit of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit Earth, on 4th October 1957. Sputnik 1 was launched by the USSR from what is now Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. Its launch and successful orbits began the Space Race with the USA. The satellite was a reflective sphere 58 centimetres in diameter, equipped with four radio antennae. It was both visible from Earth and its signals were easily picked up by domestic radios, marking a propaganda coup for the Soviets. It had an elliptical orbit taking it between 215 and 939 kilometres in altitude. Sputnik 1 made 1440 orbits of the Earth, before burning up on re-entry on 4th January 1958.

Moscow earns the scientific glory for mankind's first stride into outer space. Animated films graphically show how a mighty three-stage rocket placed an artificial moon into an orbit around the earth--a feat that prompts a Western re-appraisal of Russian missile progress.
