|Notes||On verso: Bell System Exhibit, Seattle World's Fair -- A full-sized model of the United States' first satellite, Vanguard I, is a part of the Bell System exhibit at the Seattle World's Fair. Bell System hostess Linda Colwell explains how two Bell Laboratories inventions -- the Bell Solar Battery and transistors -- contributed to Vanguard I's success. The satellite's dependable voice -- still operating more than four years after it was placed in orbit -- is expected to continue through its estimated lifetime of some 200 years.|
The Century 21 Exposition took place between April 21 and October 21, 1962 and is also known as the Seattle World's Fair.
