Standout Childhood Memories

I was 8 and a bit, and the achievement attracted my interest in science and technology.

My guess is that Chris Mooney is far too young to recall how seriously amazing it was just to hear the beep-beep being sent back to Earth from Sputnik.

The outcome of course was much vanity and arrogance and at the same time some side benefits. Khruschev was showing off and what a beautiful world he created as a result! And of course, he also seeded the demise of the fatuity of Communism. So thank you Sputnik!!
