Happy birthday to Sputnik!
Today is the 53rd anniversary of the launch of Sputnik, the Earth's first artificial satellite and arguably the first manmade thing to leave the planet. 53 years ago today, we took our first steps to becoming a spacefaring race! Sputnik didn't last very long, burning up only 3 months after its launch, but raise a glass anyway in honour of the little spiky ball that could!

Sputnik was an interesting part of history.

Thanks, OP for recalling it to mind.
