4 октября 1957 года - запуск Первого в мире советского искусственного спутника Земли

Recommended Posts

Завтра, 4 октября 2014 года, отмечается 57-ая годовщина запуска Советским Союзом первого ИСЗ!

Хотелось бы напомнить народу про это знаменательное событие :fuuu_29:/>

Для тех кто совсем не в курсе что это тогда такое было:



Для тех кто вкурсе и знает аглицкий :fuuu_47:/>


Титры на видео не совсем правильные.

Привожу оригинал:


S U R P R I S E !



Remember the fifties, those fat complacent days

When the future seemed a century away?

Then up went Sputnik, gave the world a butt-kick,

And made it clear tomorrow starts today.


Beep beep beep beep…Hello there!

Sputnik sails giggling through the skies.

Red flags, red faces, jump into the race

As the space age begins with a surprise.


You generals once thought Von Braun a waste of cash,

And Goddard needed treatment really bad.

Then that global shot put gave you the hotfoot

And — beep beep — you’re blasted off the pad.


Done for a threat, propaganda or prestige —

The point is, the thing was in the sky.

It made the generals frown and put their money down,

And meet that bet or know the reason why.


That’s how it started, all those years ago,

The push that got us climbing into space.

Cynic beginnings, greed for big winnings.

But look at all we’ve gotten from that race!


Sputnik wore out, and spiraled back to Earth;

On re-entry it burned up very soon.

Hail and goodbye to that goose in the sky —

And in twelve more years a man

walked on the Moon!

Почему не праздник? Почему не выходной? Каждый житель России должен подготовить и запустить свой спутник в этот день! У кого выше взлетит...
