First Multi-Planet star system Discovered

Astronomers have discovered a group of three Jupiter-sized planets

orbiting around the star Upsilon Andromedae. This is the first ever

multiple planet star system found - all previous 18 extrasolar planets

have been unique to their star system.

changes in climate.

Swatch Abandons Plans to Launch Satellite

Under tremendous pressure from amateur ratio enthusiasts, Swatch has abandoned

its plans to launch a communications satellite from Mir. The satellite would

have broadcast advertisements on the specific frequency used by ham

operators - sort of a radio spam. Swatch has moved its message to the

Internet instead.

More Globalstar satellites Launched

Globalstar continues to build its satellite network with Wednesday's launch

of four more telecommunications satellites from the Baikonur cosmodrome in

Kazakhstan. Globalstar plans to have a complete network of 48 satellites by

the end of the year.
