Yeah.... but that happened in the '60's....

How about Sputnik 1 -- it was launched on October 4, 1957.

Our, the U.S.'s Explorer 1. Explorer 1 was the first satellite launched by the United States when it was sent into space on January 31, 1958.

Following the launch of the Soviet Union's Sputnik 1 on October 4, 1957, the U.S. Army Ballistic Missile Agency was directed to launch a satellite using its Jupiter C rocket developed under the direction of Dr. Wernher von Braun. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory received the assignment to design, build and operate the artificial satellite that would serve as the rocket's payload. JPL completed this job in less than three months.


Explorer 1 revolved around Earth in a looping orbit that took it as close as 354 kilometers (220 miles) to Earth and as far as 2,515 kilometers (1,563 miles). It made one orbit every 114.8 minutes, or a total of 12.54 orbits per day. The satellite itself was 203 centimeters (80 inches) long and 15.9 centimeters (6.25 inches) in diameter. Explorer 1 made its final transmission on May 23, 1958. It entered Earth's atmosphere and burned up on March 31, 1970, after more than 58,000 orbits.

The primary science instrument on Explorer 1 was a cosmic ray detector designed to measure the radiation environment in Earth orbit. Once in space this experiment, provided by Dr. James Van Allen of the State University of Iowa, revealed a much lower cosmic ray count than expected. Van Allen theorized that the instrument may have been saturated by very strong radiation from a belt of charged particles trapped in space by Earth's magnetic field. The existence of these radiation belts was confirmed by another U.S. satellite launched two months later, and they became known as the Van Allen Belts in honor of their discoverer.

Wouldn't it be better to make it a Science Fiction Day, without the limitations of the year?

I agree with Valfor. A general Science Fiction Day would appeal to me more. Lots more.Wink

I dunno... I kinda like the decade limitation. I might expand it to the 50s and 60s, perhaps, but there's no doubt that the 50s themes possess a certain unique charm. Of course, unique charm could prove grating by the end of the day.

No, I prefer the Decade limtation.... otherowse I see the predictable overwhleming requests for Star Wars, Star Trek, and ET, etc . . . Rolling Eyes

I do think it would be good to have a Sci-FI "Blockuster Movie" day to highlight the aforementioned movies, among others.. Smile

Sound_Track, I think that Sputnik 1's launch date is a good idea.

But, I don't think that we have enough support to get the '50s classic SF' happening. I suspect that more people prefer a general SF day. Complete with Star Wars, et. al.

Ah well, maybe another time!

I also don't think a 50's classic SF is going to happen soon.
From the list of movies posted above SST only has 2 soundtracks from that era ('The Day the Earth Stood Still' and 'Journey To The Center Of The Earth').
SST also has at least two soundtracks from remakes of movies from that era ('War of the Worlds' and 'The Fly'), but that is certainly not 50's.

My guess is that the classic SF theme day is going to happen if the time is expanded from before the 50's to the 60's and maybe even the 70's.

Based on the Logistics of it all, I think you're right.... have together, a 50's and a 60's Sci-Fi Day. Smile
