Le réalisateur David Hoffman partage des extraits de son documentaire "Spoutnik Mania", qui explique comment le lancement de Spoutnik en 1957 par l'Union Soviétique a entraîné à la fois la course à l'espace mais aussi la course aux armements, et a fait décoller l'enseignement de la science et des mathématiques dans le monde entier.

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
