1957 - At the age of 74 years old, Lena was alive when on October 4th, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, the first man made earth-orbiting satellite - and triggered the Space Race. Sputnik I was only 23 inches in diameter and had no tracking equipment, only 4 antennas, but it had a big impact.

1970 - In the year of Lena Maynard's passing, on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen.
