6. I remember going out at night
and watching for Telstar and the other early satillites. Back then it was really special and awesome.

8. I remember that too.
The whole neighborhood was our it in street waiting for Echo to fly by.

Now when I lay on my deck at night there's one going by every couple of minutes.

9. There were words to it.
My dad was telling me this. Something about "...send a message to my love..." but I can't find them on the web.

13. Yep...
Quite a big deal when it went up. All the TV stations carried the first short broadcast--Stars and Stripes and a waving flag... symbols of a more hopeful time.
