Happy birthday, Sputnik 1! First step of humanity towards spaceflight.
Sixty years ago today, at 22:28:34 Moscow time, 4 October 1957, an R-7 rocket carrying Sputnik-1 launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome, and the age of space began.

58 centimeters across, carrying a 1-watt transmitter which sent steady beeps at 20.005 and 40.002MHz for the next three weeks, the little ball was Earth's first artificial companion.

Happy 60th birthday, Sputnik!

For those who are not cognizant of Pakistan-China relations
Albeit this Wikipedia article is incomplete on many accounts and I'd argue ETIM is no longer an impediment between our relations after Pakistan relinquished support for Taliban, this article is okay for getting an initial insight. Better try Andrew Small's "China-Pakistan Axis: Asia's New Geopolitics" to understand the nexus of these relations.
