ATT has apparently given up on Telstar 401. They are asking the FCC to
move Telstar 302 to 401's position.

Also, a Delta 2 at the Cape blew up 10 sec after launch carrying a GPS 
satellite. It looks like nobody hurt and the launch pads didn't get major =
damage. My guess is one of the solids blew.
