    The Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) launched
    successfully aboard a Pegasus rocket on April 28,
    2003.
    Initial indications show that all systems are in
    working order after this morning's launch. GALEX's
    solar panels successfully deployed and the craft is in
    a stable Earth orbit. It will go through a month of
    testing before beginning its mission in June.
