No. The first satellite launched into space was the Soviet Sputnik 1. It was launched on the 4th of October, 1957. It had a 3 month mission plan, after which it burned up upon reentering the Earth’s atmosphere on the 4th of January, 1958.
To piggyback your answer. Do you know what is the longest a satellite has been in space? Or which satellite has currently been up there the longest?
The longest man made object still in space is the Vanguard 1, which was launched on the 17th of March, 1958. The communication with it was lost in 1964. The oldest communication satellite was the ATS-3, launched in November 1967 and retired in 2001, after 34 years of service.
