    First live television transmission via satellite
    The Telstar satellite first beamed live television from the United States to the United Kingdom on this day in 1962. The initial transmission of pictures of ATT chairman Frederick Kappel were received in poor quality in the U.K but were picked up clearly in France. The landmark transmission marked the beginning of satellite broadcasting and changed the face of telecommunications.
