The Russian satellite Sputnik launched into space, becoming the first man-made object to ever leave the Earth's atmosphere.

The achievement sent shockwaves through the United States and marked the start of a "space race" between the two countries. 

All the best, Leia

#1: I first read “8 km/h” and thought it was so slow. 8 km/s is very fast.

#0: There’s been a lot of conspiracy theories around the US landing on the moon. I wonder if they ever thought that Sputnik was “fake news”.

#4: No, not in general. I'm probably easier than most to fool.

#5: That doesn't stop a lot of people from thinking the moon landing was a big hoax.
