Sputnik by teddybearcholla Sputnik by teddybearcholla
Do you remember this.... [link] ....

" History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I. The world's first artificial satellite was about the size of a beach ball (58 cm.or 22.8 inches in diameter), weighed only 83.6 kg. or 183.9 pounds, and took about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path. That launch ushered in new political, military, technological, and scientific developments. "
I vaguely remember this in school...whatever grade a 9 year old would be in. But I am glad to have been born in this age!!!
BTW....it looks great on the desktop!!!

Aaaaah I let out a sigh of contemplative relief looking at this piece, it is so soothing on the ole brain patterns, does that mean the Russians are trying to brainwash me, I knew they would try, Oh why Oh why did I look at this artwork, now I will never be the same, Oh wait thats cos its been done by one of the beautiful people, whew!! I thought I'd gone communist for a moment there ha Ha Ha meanwhile its me ole brain just relaxing at the beautiful vibes coming from TBC's outer space gallery......lovely fantastic piece of art Barbs, I got a bit carried away with the compliment though ha ha Ha
