President Barack Obama made reference to a “Sputnik Moment” in America. The president pointed to how the national has fallen behind other nations in public STEM education, the ratio of those graduating with college degrees, the development of clean energy technologies, high-speed computers, modern magnetic levitation trains, airports, and highways. The linked documentary above provides insight into the period in American history for those of Generation X, Y and Z. The 56-minute Sputnik Moment is worth the time to view.
