Image: Sputnik: The First Satellite (Space Firsts), by Heather Feldman (Author). Publisher: Powerkids Pr (August 1, 2003)First Space Vehicle Launched 1957
- Sputnik was the first artificial satellite successfully placed in orbit around the Earth and was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at Tyuratam (370 km southwest of the small town of Baykonur) in Kazakhstan. At the time of its launch, this spacecraft was simply called the first artificial Earth satellite; the name Sputnik was applied much later.

Read: Sputnik: The First Satellite
-- The Cold War was at its height when the USSR successfully launched the world's first satellite. In the uproar that followed, the American space initiative was born. Students will read about the dedicated scientists who made the dream of space exploration a reality, how the United States responded to the Soviet achievement, and how satellites continue to make communication on Earth easier.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
