About Sputnik, Denver

Sputnik 1 (; Russian: Спутник-1 [ˈsputnʲɪk] "Satellite-1", or ПС-1 ["PS-1", i.e., Russian: Простейший Спутник-1, Prosteyshiy Sputnik-1, "Elementary Satellite 1"]) was the first artificial Earth satellite. The Soviet Union launched it into an elliptical low Earth orbit on 4 October 1957. It was a 58 cm (23 in) diameter polished metal sphere, with four external radio antennas to broadcast radio pulses. It was visible all around the Earth and its radio pulses were detectable. This surprise success precipitated the American Sputnik crisis and triggered the Space Race, a part of the larger Cold War. The launch ushered in new political, military, technological, and scientific developments. Tracking and studying Sputnik 1 from Earth provided scientists with valuable information, even though the satellite itself wasn't equipped with sensors. The density of the upper atmosphere could be deduced from its drag on the orbit, and the propagation of its radio signals gave information about the ionosphere. Sputnik 1 was launched during the International Geophysical Year from Site No.1/5, at the 5th Tyuratam range, in Kazakh SSR (now known as the Baikonur Cosmodrome). The satellite travelled at about 29,000 kilometres per hour (18,000 mph; 8,100 m/s), taking 96.2 minutes to complete each orbit. It transmitted on 20.005 and 40.002 MHz, which were monitored by amateur radio operators throughout the world. The signals continued for 21 days until the transmitter batteries ran out on 26 October 1957. Sputnik burned up on 4 January 1958 while reentering Earth's atmosphere, after three months, 1440 completed orbits of the Earth, and a distance travelled of about 70 million km (43 million mi).

Sputnik, Denver Reviews - Write a Review

  • Absolutely FANTASTIC! Tons of delicious vegan food and beer choices! Places like this make me want to move to Denver. The bar was full of people, and everyone was having a good time and also minding their own business. This may sound like an inconsequential detail, but where where I come from this is rare! The bartender was efficient. Everything was A++ with the exception of the music selection which was not only bad but really loud. But it was a small price to pay for that food and beer. I would eat here at least once a week if I was local.

  • LOVE THE food! such great vegan options... I only wish it was a bit cleaner. The tables get cleared but not wiped down. Everything I've had is delicious! Great atmosphere.

  • Oh yeah. This place is a great combination of cheap drinks, nice drink options, really good bar food (vegan option all the things), and solid ambiance. The food was great. We got two sandwiches that were absolutely phenomenal, and they came with gobs of fries. You can order cheap drinks or kick it up a notch for cocktails. No matter what, the background music and fun decorations will satisfy you.

  • I had high hopes based on other people's reviews so maybe my expectations were too high? I didn't care for the food or the service. Our waitress spent the whole time outside smoking, on her phone, or perched atop the newspaper stand by the front door. I understand everyone needs a break but we were there for around an hour and she never made it back with anything requested when our food was brought out. My Cuban didn't seem to have any cheese or any moisture. Overall a disappointing experience.

  • Lots of delicious vegan options here! I love this place. And the servers are always so pleasant! Try the vegan corn dog, the vegan tacos, the vegan Philly. Apparently they have a wonderful brunch too. Can't wait to try that!
