Sputnik Robot

This is the homepage of "Sputnik Robot", the Grant family entry for Pi Wars 2019 (We've been accepted as a reserve).

This is more of a page for ourselves to dump information we think may be useful to write down - so may not be very structured.

Blog is available at blog.sputnikrobot.co.uk

We chose the name Sputnik because of the 2019 space theme. Our family is half Russian - so we decided to go for a Russian theme. Sputnik 1 was the first man made satellite to orbit the earth and was launched by the Soviet Union in October 1957. This launch accelerated the space race between the USA and the Soviet Union. Without it the Apollo missions may not have launched so soon. So we feel it is a fitting name. It also has the bonus of having the letters 'p' and 'i' embedded in the name, so fits perfectly with Pi Wars.
