The first public images beamed from New York to the Goonhilly Satellite
Earth Station in Cornwall (above) on July 23 should have been of President
John F Kennedy, but because of a delay in the United States viewers were
first treated to footage of a baseball game which was being shown on US
television.


The satellite was used for several television demonstrations before going
out of service on February 21 the following year.
