Unfortunately the wording in the Florida Today article was "postponed
indefinitely." This should give the international community of sky
watchers an opportunity to work together to let the Russian company and
others with similar ideas how we feel.

I found another article at the Florida Today site much more alarming -
"U.S. bans some satellite images of Israel." How in the world is such a
ban justified and what does Israel have to hide?
