Der Filmproduzent David Hoffman stellt Filmmaterial aus seinem Dokumentarspielfilm "Sputnik Mania" vor, das zeigt wie der Start von Sputnik durch die Sowjetunion im Jahre 1957 sowohl zu dem Wettlauf ins All, als auch dem Wettrüsten führte - und wissenschaftliche und mathematische Bildung überall auf der Welt anstieß.

In David Hoffman's long film career, he's made documentaries on everything from Amelia Earhardt to B.B. King, from double-dutch jump-roping to F-15 fighter pilots. Lately he's been fascinated with the early space program and our mania for all things Sputnik. Full bio
