Sputnik in Lobby 10

Location: Lobby 10
Date: October 4, 2007

For the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Sputnik 1 satellite, MIT hackers placed a beeping model of it in Lobby 10. According to a note on the wall, the beeping corresponded to the radio signal transmitted by the satellite as it circled the world in 1957.
