1959 Vanguard 2 (NASA)

Vanguard 2 was an Earth-orbiting satellite launched on 17 February 1959 by the Vanguard SLV 4 launch vehicle as part of Project Vanguard. The satellite was designed to measure cloud-cover distribution over the daylight portion of its orbit. The spacecraft was a magnesium sphere 20 in (50.8 cm) in diameter. It contained two optical telescopes with two photocells. Creative Commons licence: Video derives from the Universal International News archive which has been placed in the public domain.

Today, every mission relies on satellite intelligence. Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) is the backbone of the US military's communications. With software upgrades, higher bandwidth, and powerful anti-jamming, they're more resilient than ever before.

Sputnik - 60 years on from the Start of the Space Race

Sputnik - 60 years on from the Start of the Space Race

That simple little beep, beep, beep was the sound that started the Space Race. It's been 60 years since they have first heard on October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1 into a low Earth orbit. It was only a metal ball, 22 inches or about 56 centimetres in diameter, with four antennae sticking out of it – but it had an impact far greater than its size. In fact, it changed the course of human history. EDIT: a couple of mistakes on my part. Firstly the date Khrushchev said "we will bury you" was 1956 on 1965, for some reason i said 65 even though the script said 56. Second, the pic of Dmitry Ustinov, I focused on the wrong man, it should have been the one in the bottom right which is partially cut out. https://www.patreon.com/curiousdroid Sponsors: Symon Hamer, Florian Hesse, Georgi Dobrev, Pyloric, Seb Stoodley, Oscar Anderson, Peter Cote, Cody Belichesky, Mogoreanu Daniel, Douglas Gustafson, Marcus Chiado, Mitchell Payce, Skalgrin, Jorn Magnus Karlsen, John Roscoe.
