Korabl-Sputnik 1, known as "Sputnik 4" in the West, was the first test flight of the Vostok program. The 4.5-ton spacecraft carried a variety of scientific instruments, including a television camera and a self-contained biological cabin with a dummy astronaut. The purpose of the mission was to study the operation of life support systems and the stresses of flight.

Playpen sofas of the 1970s were a unique and innovative furniture design that reflected the cultural and design trends of that era.

America may be known for pioneering many sciences and technologies, but a new report has revealed that it is now losing this race to other nations like China.
