  Around The Earth


Observing the universe from space became a real possibility on 4 October 1957, when Russia launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite.

The United
States lofted Explorer 1 into orbit on 31 January 1958, and between then and 1984 65 Explorer-class satellites were successfully launched. These missions studied such scientific phenomena as Earth's magnetic fields, the solar wind, and ultraviolet radiation from stars and galaxies.
