Synopsis of Report on Development of Conceptual Design of an Artificial Earth Satellite [1956]
Document signed by Sergey P. Korolev on 25 September 1956. It is the detailed technical plan for the 'Object D,' the first Soviet satellite project. The program was approved by a decree of the USSR Council of Ministers on 30 January 1956 and envisaged the launch of a heavy scientific satellite in 1957 at the start of the International Geophysical Year. The Object D program was a a direct result of Korolev and Mikhail K. Tikhonravov's request to the government in May 1954 to launch an artificial Earth satellite.
Korolev's position at the time was: Chief Designer and Chief of the Experimental Design Bureau No. 1 (OKB-1).







International Sputnik Day is a self-organized event by artists and scientists to commemorate the launch of the first Satellite on October 4, 1957 by the Soviet Union. The goal of International Sputnik Day is to create a series of small events -- some of them actually grew a bit bigger -- to celebrate and commemorate the historical event.

Participants from 19 cities form a diverse program of dinners, BBQs, web streams, film screenings and lectures. (Budapest, Cologne, Chatillon, Dartington, Dortmund, Frankfurt am Main, Helsinki, Kopenhagen, Liverpool, Lisabon, Ljubljana, Los Angeles, Madrid, New York City, Porto, Santa Monica, Seattle, Toronto, Wiesbaden).

Why celebrate this 50 anniversary of the Sputnik launch? To raise the awareness of the many technologies which are almost "invisible" to the human eye but very much shape the social and economical condition we live in. In reaction to the Sputnik Shock, as it was conceived in the US and other Western block countries, technologies were developed like the Global Positioning System, the Internet (ARPAnet) or the Integrated Circuit. The International Sputnik Day such raises questions about technological development and social responsibility.
