HAPPY BIRTHDAY NASA!!!!



Gosh....I am amongst those that can recall dashing outside to view Sputnik going overhead!!! The Russians launched their satellite on October 4, 1957. This event became a catalyst for then President Eisenhower to create legislation to establish the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA). NASA was officially open for business on October 1, 1958!! HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, NASA!!!

I very well remember Sputnik! In fact we were able to buy blue colored Sputnik bubble gum balls back then. My mom got into the action by making a Sputnik Christmas wreath sticking Sputnik balls into a styro wreath and put it on our front door for customers to enjoy. Thanks for bringing back good memories!
