Sputnik EssayThe event I chose was the creation of the Sputnik. The Sputnik crisis was one of American reaction to the success of the Sputnik program. It was the main event of the cold war that began on October 4; 1957.Also around this time is when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first human-made Earth satellite. The launch of Sputnik I and the defeat of its first two Project Vanguard launch efforts rattled the American citizens; President Eisenhower referred to it as the “Sputnik Crisis.” While Sputnik was itself harmless, its orbiting scared the people of the US. Rossiya Segodnya is a news agency wholly owned and operated by the Russian government, created by an Executive Order of the President of Russia on December 9, 2013. "Rossiya Segodnya" directly translates from Russian into English as "Russia Today", but should not be confused with the TV network RT, which was known as Russia Today prior to 2009. However, thestation is sometimes referred to as "Russia Today" or the "New Russia Today" in foreign media.
