Sputnik 1 - "ping" "ping" "ping"

Sputnik 1, little satellite on sphere memorabilia, USSR, 1957-60-70 ?

It all really had to start somewhere, and for the space race, 4 October 1957 is it.

With 83kg / 58cm in diameter and 4 external radio antenas, this little metal ball spent 3 months in orbit before reentering earth's atmosphere and burning up in the process.
