Video: Happy Space Age Day! Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
Today marks the anniversary when humanity first began to wander beyond the sky by the launch of Sputnik 50 years ago.

It demonstrated our species ability to send objects above our atmosphere and has spurred our race to find its place among the stars.

A hundred years from now humanity may celebrate October the 4th as an interplanetary holiday, uniting all cultures throughout our solar system in our quest to conquer the final frontier.

Until then our young race must continue to pursue the journey started by our forefathers, in order to pass that same torch towards our children and their children's children.

Happy Space Age day to all, and may God bless our fragile world, as well as those living upon it.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
