Belated Happy 50th Telstar!

50 years ago yesterday Telstar, the first communications satellite, was launched.

In celebration I give you the song of the same name:

The point about 1:15 into it still sends chills up my spine. Even today that tune has such a unique singature! Such technological optimism back in those days! We could do anything if we really tried and things were just going to get better and better!

Damn, now I have something in my eye.
