LOL...Sputnik orbited shortly after I landed. Not so heralded thereafter was the great Pahrump Panic of 1957: when a piece of Sputnik failed to burn up and landed amidst picnickers on this future development site for Las Vegas, Nevada, startled picnickers thought a radiation-polluted breed of ants was attacking. The Nevada National Guard hosed a lot of picnic baskets before the mistake was discovered...
