@uncertainquark It just occurred to me that the launch of Sputnik created a demand for Russian language teachers, of which my father was one. And his love of Russian led to my love of Russian and balalaika music and Doctor Zhivago and traveling to Moscow and Leningrad back in the day and singing in a Russian choir. So thank you, Sputnik! Спасибо, Спутник!
