This documentary chronicles the circumstances surrounding the launch of the Sputnik satellite 50 years ago and how it well might have spawned nuclear world warfare had it not been for the intervention of two former generals. An examination of relevant history, including newly available documents from the former Soviet Union, helps to shed light on this seminal near-catastrophe and the grave implications it might have had on our world.
