Telstar I, the first commercial experimental communications satellite, was launched by Bell Telephone Laboratories of AT&T on July 11, 1962. Telstar was to become the most famous of the experimental communications satellites. Its impact on the public was so great that, for a while, the name Telstar became generic for "communications satellite."
