Ill spare you the history lesson, but in 1959 Russia was NOT publicizing their missile/space program. In fact, the launches were kept top-secret until days if not weeks after a launch and ONLY made public if it were a successful one.
This is the same event. You may notice in all vids including the first, the viewers were MANY miles away and there was no sound..... just a dif viewing angle.
Even in modern times especially when you do this in the communist state of California at night, people go stupid.........
BEWARE OF PROFANITY!
