Happy Birthday, Telstar I

Telstar I is 45 years old today. Happy birthday, Telstar I. More info here (link via Boing Boing).

I remember hearing about it on the car radio. I also remember my mom helping my (maybe my brothers'—I would only have been five) Cub Scout den try to make a papier mâché Telstar using a beach ball and lots of crepe paper soaked in something (I don't remember what it was).

I also remember the song. Is it my imagination or did I hear The California Guitar Trio do a cover of that? No wait, it was The Ventures covering "Telstar," and the California Guitar Trio covering "Walk, Don't Run."
