Administration, F. A. (n.d.). The Evolution of Commercial Launch Vehicles. Retrieved from

Excerpt: On February 14, 1963, a Delta launch vehicle placed the Syncom 1 communications satellite into geosynchronous orbit (GEO). Thirty-five years later, another Delta launched the Bonum 1 communications satellite to GEO. Both launches originated from Launch Complex 17, Pad B, at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Bonum 1 weighed 21 times as much as the earlier Syncom 1 and the Delta launch vehicle that carried it had a maximum geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) capacity 26.5 times greater than that of the earlier vehicle.
