    Well, our local paper had a story, saying that the South Korean Foreign
said they launched a satellite.  Also, a US Senator, Craig Thomas of Wyoming,
is quoted saying that NASA thinks a satellite is in orbit.

    However, the Pentagon, still says no satellite was launched, so what really
happened is still far from certain.
