What was the first artificial satellite placed in orbit around the earth? Apollo I Gemini Sputnik Hubble
I am nearly 100% sure it is Sputnik, a simple Google search should confirm. What was amazing about the Sputnik is it was the driving force of America to become more scientific, to explore space. Of course the red scare of the soviet union was a major play as well. Peace.
