Sputnik 1

Broadcast 800 (Special Edition)

Ted Spitzmiller was the guest for this special Space Show program. As a space historian and author of the newly published series of books by Apogee, "Astronautics: Book 1-Dawn Of The Space Age" and "Book 2-To The Moon and To The Future," we talked important space history starting with Sputnik 1. As this week is the 50th anniversary of Sputnik, we did focus on the impact of Sputnik on America and the world, plus the early days of the American space program. Many listener questions came in for Ted.
