Sputnik Haircut - 1958
In January 1958 this man created a hairstyle in honor of sputnik. In 1958 he was odd, today no one would give him a second look.
The real Sputnik 1, launched by the Soviet Union on Oct 4, 1957. It was the size of a beach ball and was destroyed on reentry in January of 1958. As I recall we use to stand outside at night and look for it as it circled the earth every 98 minutes and you could see it with the naked eye.
