Sputnik design plans
You can download design plans for the Sputnik, the satellite that kick-started the space race fifty years ago today, at the website of the Arizona Model Aircrafters. The plans exclude the instruments; these are perhaps left as an exercise for the reader.
The PDF for the design plans (sputnik) will not open. Are they defaulted? Could you send it to me by mail?

I am not sure what you mean by defaulted. It does appear that if I try to load them in the browser, the browser (or rather, the Adobe Reader plug-in) locks up. If I open them in Foxit Reader, they open just fine.
The PDF opens fine for me. Are there any good shots available of the 3 indents along the circumference of the sphere and their dimensions?
You should ask the makers, not me.
