+ - The Very 1st American Newsreel of Sputnik Launch-> 1

MMBK (1677314) writes "Fifty three years ago this week, the Russians won the space race – or one of it’s laps – by successfully launching the Sputnik satellite into orbit. This newsreel, the first to report on the launch, recycles older animation about geosynchronic orbits, since all film footage was kept secret (note the very un-Soviet IBM logo on one of the massive computers)."
