Sea Launch Successful

The ocean-based Sea Launch, designed to launch rockets from the

mid-Pacific, had its first successful test on Saturday - a Russian

Zenit-3SL rocket equipped with a dummy satellite. The rocket

lifted from the launch pad, and flew up to an altitude of 1,200

miles where it separated from the satellite.

Astronomers Discover asteroid with Moon

Astronomers have discovered a tiny Moon orbiting the asteroid 45

asteroid every 4.7 days.
