Regizorul David Hoffman prezintă fragmente din documentarul său Sputnik Mania, care arată cum a condus lansarea Sputnik-ului de către Uniunea Sovietica în 1957, atât la cursa spaţială, cât şi la cursa înarmărilor şi a propulsat ştiinţa şi educaţia matematică pe tot globul.

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
