Sputnik: Beep, beep, beep

Sputnik: Beep, beep, beep

The sound of the first artificial satellite orbiting the Earth shook the world in October 1957. You couldn’t miss the philatelic echo either, as Sputnik was lavishly celebrated by stamps from the Soviet Union and its allies

Geez I am glad to say I was not even born then, queuing up behind my brothers I'm afraid. 1957 eh did not think it was that old.

Love the 2nd landscape stamp with the 3 legged / finned rocket, takes me back some years again, cant think of the super hero name, i can remember the rocket going up a piece of string though lol lol.
