History
 
This is a detailed, textured model of the Sputnik 1, or 'Satellite-1'
 
Sputnik 1 (Russian: 'Satellite-1', or literally 'Co-traveler-1' byname ??-1
or Elementary Satellite-1) was the first artificial satellite to be put into
geocentric orbit. Launched by the Soviet Union on October 4, 1957, it was the
first satellite of the Sputnik program
 
The satellite helped to identify the density of high atmospheric layers by
its orbit change and provided data on radio-signal distribution in the
ionosphere. Because the satellite's body was filled with pressurized nitrogen,
Sputnik 1 also provided the first opportunity for meteorite detection, as losses
in internal pressure due to meteoroid penetration of the outer surface would
have been evident in the temperature data. The unanticipated announcement of
Sputnik 1's success precipitated the Sputnik crisis in the United States and
ignited the so-called Space Race within the Cold War.
