Jodrell Bank publishing Russian moon pictures on the front page of British newspapers before Russia even got to see them.
The camera on the spacecraft started faxing data. Jodrell Bank had no fax so borrowed one from the local Daily Express office. The images were the first actually published taken on the Moon.
I know. Almost caused a major international incident!
I didn't know about the fax machine part, however.
FAX had been around for a long time but the first commercial fax machine was introduced by Xerox in 1964.
