RCA’s project SCORE (signal communications orbit relay equipment)
was the world’s first communications satellite. An Air Force Atlas  
inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) launched the satellite from
Cape Canaveral, Florida. The first voice broadcast from SCORE
was a message from President Dwight D. Eisenhower, shown in
