    Today, October 4, marks the 49th anniversary of the launch of the
    first artifical sputnik of earth. Just a reminder! That's the
    satellite that started it all.
    
    This summer work (>paying< work) piled up, so my project to tabulate
    earliest-known earth satellite orbits for all catalogued objects is
    still stalled around the beginning of 1968. But there's a little light
    at the end of the tunnel coming in November; maybe I'll be able to
    resume my "walk" then.
