"On October 4th 1957 the Soviet Union launched "Sputnik" to celebrate the "October Revolution", using an R-7 launch vehicle designed initially to carry nuclear warheads. (The satellite was 58 cm in diameter and weighed approximately 84 kg. The first man-made object to reach outer space, each of its elliptical orbits around the Earth took about 96 minutes.)
On October 23, 1917 Bolshevik leader Jaan Anvelt led his leftist revolutionaries in an uprising in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. On October 25 (November 7), 1917, Vladimir Lenin led his forces in the uprising in Saint Petersburg, the capital of Russia, against the ineffective Kerensky Provisional Government. For the most part, the revolt in Petrograd was bloodless, with the Red Guards led by Bolsheviks taking over major government facilities with little opposition before finally launching an assault on the Winter Palace on the night of 25/26 October. The assault led by Vladimir Antonov-Ovseenko was launched at 9:45 p.m. signalled by a blank shot from the cruiser Aurora. (The Aurora was placed in Leningrad (modern St. Petersburg) and still stands there now.) The Winter Palace was guarded by Cossacks, cadets (military students), and a Women's Battalion. It was taken at about 2 a.m.
