While the whole world is afraid of the second wave of coronavirus, Russia reported new developments about the coronavirus vaccine. Has the coronavirus vaccine been found?
Sputnik, the world's first artificial satellite, was put into orbit by the Soviet Union on October 4, 1957. Sputnik 1, which was sent during the cold war years, caused the Soviet Union to raise its name among the superpowers. A new competitive race continued in space.
Today, the new position of the competition race has been coronavirus, which is an epidemic. The fact that the new name of the coronavirus vaccine, which has affected all countries since the end of 2019, is Sputnik, may cause a new race.
During the Cold War years, there were many competitions between the USA and the Soviet Union on different issues. The two countries competed on issues such as technology, economic system superiority, and military power. With the Soviet Union launching the Sputnik vehicle into space, a new race began in space.
Sputnik spent 22 days in space. Sputnik could be seen from Earth with the naked eye, thanks to its metal surface. Sputnik, which weighed 1.83 kilograms, contained a radio transmitter that allows operators to monitor. These radio transmitters were also measuring the satellite's internal pressure and temperature values.
