Re: Sputnik I launched Oct. 4 1957



I think it was only 47 years ago so I was 9 years old!

I remember listening on my parents "radiogram" a piece of smart furniture
that incorporated a radio and record player.

It covered "SW" and I convinced myself that I heard the signal

I doubt that I did but anyway the passion fire was lit that day and space is
still important to me as a result!

ah memories!
