First man-made object launched into outer space Sputnik 1 was the first man made

First man-made object launched into outer space Sputnik 1 was the first man made satellite launched into space. It was sent off by the Soviet Union October 4, 1957, at 7: 28 PM. This event caused the United States to get in a hurry to get into outer space and eventually to the moon. This launch not only launched Sputnik 1, but also the space race. The Soviet Union really rattled the United States, but did that help the Soviet Union or hurt them? Engdahl, Sylvia. "Space Race. " Americans at War. Ed. John P. Resch. Vol. 4: 1946 -Present.
