Norman Day When I was a little child, the Russian sputnik would travel around the globe and we could see it in the sky, swinging from west to east like a moving star. At the same time, the radio ( I believe it was ABC) , would play the noise the satellite was making as it travelled over Australia - which was a PING.......PING.......PING......... It was the most progressive sound of an idea I had ever heard. My parents told me that it was the start of humans spreading into space.
