>>>>>[Has anybody heard about the orbital shootout? I just received
word that an Aztech satellite was apparently blown out of orbit by a
missile launched from a submarine in the northern Pacific. It is not
known who owned the submarine OR the missile and the sub submerged
immediately after lauch so nobody has found it yet. The sattelite was a
classified research spacecraft in low-earth orbit (about 185 miles) and
if I read my numbers correct, had a value of 1.6 billion nuyen in adjusted
figures. It was launched 2 years ago.]<<<<<

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
