Remember Telstar, the first communications satellite? This old film shows the development and launching. Lots of white shirts and ties - and old technology.

Yeah, I meant to post a link to that, too. I thought it was odd that an English group chose the name "Tornados," when tornados are not a concern in England.

Well, I guess I was wrong about that! https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/englands-title-worlds-tornado-capital-25261721
