Mission Monday: Five fast facts about Telstar, the world’s first active communications satellite

Mission Monday: Five fast facts about Telstar, the world’s first active communications satellite 58 years ago this week, NASA launched Telstar, the world’s first active communications satellite, into low-Earth orbit. The feat captured imaginations around the globe and sparked a new age of instant worldwide communications. Communication hasn’t always been instantaneous. However, 58 years ago, a beach-ball sized satellite sparked a new era of electronic communications. That satellite was Telstar 1. It launched on July 10, 1962. The mission was a cooperative effort between AT&T and the space agency to demonstrate, “the feasibility of transmitting information via satellite.” The mission was a brilliant success. It came to an end in Nov. 1962, although NASA documented that the satellite...
