    Background: Work is nearing completion on Intelsat V1, the latest international communications satellite. As tall as a four-storey building, the capsule will provide a world-wide telephone and television link. Intelsat, an organisation representing 106 nations, has already been responsible for a series of communication satellites, the first of which was Early Bird, launched in 1965. Early Bird could handle 240 simultaneous telephone calls: Intelsat V1 will be capable of handling 33,000. The satellite is built by the American Hughes Aircraft company, but components come from many countries and it is planned to launch it with the European Ariane launcher rocket.
