18 Dec : Beginning of the Communication Revolution

Communication has never been so easy as it is today. Thanks to the communication satellite revolution.
It was today in 1958 that world’s first communication satellite ‘SCORE’ was launched.
SCORE stands for Signal Communications Orbit Relay Equipment. SCORE provided a first test of a communications relay system in space and captured world attention by broadcasting a Christmas message via short wave frequency from U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower through an onboard tape recorder.

The very first transmitted message from space to the world came via SCORE from President Dwight D. Eisenhower : 

“This is the President of the United States speaking. Through the marvels of scientific advance, my voice is coming to you from a satellite traveling in outer space. My message is a simple one: Through this unique means I convey to you and all mankind, America’s wish for peace on Earth and goodwill toward men everywhere.”

1958 में आज दुनिया का पहला communications satellite लॉन्च किया गया था। इस अमेरिकी satellite का नाम SCORE था। ये satellite 35 दिनों तक काम करता रहा था। इस पूरे project के जरिये, धरती से satellite तक signal भेजना और वहां से Signal को वापस धरती तक भेजना संभव हुआ। और आगे चलकर इसी के आधार पर दुनिया में संचार की क्रांति आई।
