Atlas was the launch vehicle for the four manned Mercury orbital flights in 1962-1963.

It launched the first communications satellite that transmitted President Eisenhower's pre-recorded Christmas speech around the world. For all three robotic lunar exploration programs, Atlas was used, as well as both Mariner and Pioneer planetary probes.
