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).

  • 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.

  • Their vegan options are FANTASTIC! The food was really great which i have nothing negative to say there. If you're looking for some great vegetarian/vegan grub then I definitely recommend this place. We did, however, walk in mid Sunday morning for brunch and were confused as we were not greeted to be sat. There were a lot of people at the bar but no one paid us any attention. I'm guessing it's a place where you seat yourself, but we couldn't find a sign that stated so. Anyways, we sat down at the front and were greeted at our table very timely and the service was great. Therefore, plan on seating yourself if you don't want to walk in and stand there looking confused! It is also a little loud in there (the acoustics must be a little off) but it's a great place to socialize with friends and grab a drink and a bite!

  • Sputnik has some really tasty sandwiches and their food is vegetarian and vegan friendly. They offer dressed up and kind of international takes on bar food. They make a lot from scratch so it is healthier than what you would expect and tastier too.

  • Funky atmosphere with nice service and amazing looking menu! So many Vegetarian and vegan options. Most dishes have a vegan options available. The camping club with the Tempeh bacon is delicious and huge! Definitely recommended. The vegan garlic dipping sauce for fries is also a must, packed full of garlic!

  • THE. BEST. CUBAN. SANDWICH. IN. DENVER. Also get a side of fries with sriracha ranch. You won't regret it. Their kitchen stays open super late, which is nice when you are out in that neighborhood. Vegan and gluten-free friendly, so I took my sister there a ton when she came to visit. Love this place, so I felt it was time to finally write a review.
