Current Events -- NASA's OGO-1 Satellite


NASA's OGO-1 satellite has finally returned to Earth after 56 years in orbit

After 56 years in orbit, this satellite splashes down near Tahiti.

What technologies do we have today that we didn’t have when this satellite went up?
How are satellites used?
What was happening in NASA 56 years ago? 
There was an article preview on the same page about a palm pilot which made me wonder what technologies have come and disappeared in that time frame.
How does something that big falling into the ocean affect the living organisms?
How has day-to-day living changed since the OGO-1 went up? (Or any single aspect of it!)
