Japan joins space club UNCHINOURA (Reuter) Japan's first full-fledged space satellite orbited the earth Tues- day, ending a long embarrass- ing series of failures for local scientists. The 138.8 pound satellite began sending back radio sig- nals to this southern Japanese space centre almost two hours after a flawless launch atop a four stage solid fuel rocket. Japan joined the elite space club a year ago with the orbit- ing of the nose cone from a four-stage rocket, but radio sig- nals from the primitive satel- lite ceased after 15 hours. The launchmg was designed to test rocket and satellite sys- tems before the orbitting of the first scientific payload later this year. The current satellite is de- signed only to send back sig- nals until its batteries die in one week. Scientists said it was circling the earth every 66 minutes in an elliptical orbit ranging from 61a to 683 miles above the earth Canadian SIMPSONS-SEARS UUAHANTEEr r Luxurious SEARS-O-PEDIC Mattress or Box Spring Sale Priced each 4-Pce.
