A model of Sputnik shown passing over the Sahara 560 miles above the Earth. Launched in October 4, 1957. Decayed in January 4, 1958, 3 months after it was launched by Vostok from Baikonur LC1, Kasakhstan. Credit to brunurb and Mr Planet. Note: I didn't type the Russian text. Just copied it from Wikipedia. Sputnik appeared in many shows and video games, including the SpongeBob Squarepants episode "Sing A Song For Patrick" where the covering is aluminum as a joke to show the height SpongeBob and Patrick were at in the radio tower -- 1 mile from the ground! This website will tell you all about it. #Baikonur_LC1 #Earth #Sahara_Desert #SpongeBob_Squarepants #Sputnik #Vostok
