How many heard "beep, beep, beep..." 55 years ago today?
[link to www.cbsnews.com]

Sputnik ("traveling companion" in Russian) was a small sphere about 22 inches in diameter, with four long antennas protruding from its head. The 183-pound probe used a radio beacon to send a beeping sound back to Earth as it orbited the planet every 98 minutes.

This beeping was played over the world's radio stations, and in combination with the sight of the probe orbiting Earth, sparked fear in Americans that our country was falling behind the Soviets in technological capability.

I was in the womb at that time.

Three or 4 years later, I recall my dad pointing to something in the sky and telling me it was Sputnik.

I liked Sputnik, and wanted one.

I was also!

When I was a kid I had a dream of being in a space capsule so I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up. Then my Mom told me that most astronauts (at that time) served in the military. After hearing that I wanted to be an astronomer.
