One Giant Leap in Profits: Space and the Corporations

In 1957, a 2’ wide aluminium globe made it into orbit around Earth. It was called Sputnik and I remember it well, not because I was interested in Space as a toddler, but because my brother called his guinea-pig Sputnik. Sputnik was launched by the Soviet Union.

And On The Seventh Day I Published: the joys of world-building
