America responds to Sputnik




While searching for more info about Project Farside, and generally failing to find anything new, I did come across articles from Life Magazine. These are from October 1957, just after Sputnik made orbit. The coverage is pretty detailed, and rather balanced considering the political conditions at the time.

Oct 1957

The ads may just be the best part!
