The Telstar 1 AT&T Communications Satellite was launched on top of a Thor-
Delta rocket on July 10, 1962. It successfully relayed through space the first
television pictures, telephone calls, fax images and provided the first live
transatlantic television feed.  

The instrumental “Telstar" by The Tornados was the first single by
a British band to reach number on the the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It
was released on August 17, 1962, five weeks after the launch of the
Telstar satellite.
