Few sounds of the space race are more famous than the one that started it all, 1957's Sputnik. This quote from the first machine in orbit is carefully hand-written in roundhand calligraphic script using light-fast acrylic ink, and is ideal for the wall of any keen astronomer or space nut.

UK orders will be a4 size, posted out flat with cellophane wrap and cardboard backing, with no charge for postage.

Orders for elsewhere will be 8x10 size, posted in a mailing tube with tissue paper packing.


The Sputnik beep is an iconic sound, with a place right in the heart of space race culture
