Sputnik Returns from the stars, 50 years on….. History generally has accepted that Sputnik 1 was launches on October 4th, 1957 and orbit decayed on re-entry to the earth’s atmosphere on 4th January 1958. This momentous event was celebrated by FUN Incorporated’s Mystic Peg Puzzle #1 called the SPUTNIK PUZZLE which was released in 1958.

The truth is that for the past 50 years Sputnik’s charred remains have been in the Australian bush and we’re now able to re-release it to the world. Only the 4th antenna could not be retrieved; it appears lost forever.

Your challenge is to disassemble and reassemble the 9 charred remaining pieces of the new Sputnik puzzle. When properly assembled one of the three surviving antennas is fixed and the other two move freely in and out 30mm.
Size: 75mm x 75mm x 75mm.
