Russia’s current coronavirus vaccine shares its name with which of the following?
Sputnik V (V for vaccine), is the trademarked name of Russia's COVID-19 vaccine. In a nod to last century's Cold War space race, the Russians named the vaccine Sputnik V after the world's first satellite named Sputnik. Sputnik V has received some questioning from scientists around the world as the vaccine was approved following less than two months of human testing. Russia is not the only world power to draw on outer space for inspiration in naming COVID-19 treatments. In the United States, the Trump administration launched the initiative named "Operation Warp Speed."
