Los Mustang again, now performing "Telstar", by The Tornados (1962). Telstar is the name of various communication satellites, including the first such satellite to relay television signals. The first two Telstar satellites were experimental and nearly identical. Telstar 1 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.
