Some of you might enjoy reading these recollections about the 
development of Telstar, one of the first active satellites, at Bell 
Laboratories. The article is by J. R. Pierce, who was a well-known 
executive and scientist at Bell.

Here is a very interesting article about the development of Echo, the 
balloon satellite, also written by Pierce.
I remember when we at Ohio State recorded President Eisenhower's 
message relayed by Echo. I have lost the tape, however.
