there was a carnival in the barracks when sputnik was launched in october 1957. i had a new jerkin with a furry collar and felt a real ted sahsaying around "wi' me winkle pickers". there were tears the following month when laika the dog was the first creature blasted into space on a rocket and allowed to die there.
