The Danish built satellite "?rsted" was finally launched
after 10 attempts.  The satellite got a free ride on board
a Delta II rocket launched from the Vandenberg air base in
California.

The software on board was built by CRI Denmark using the
DACS-80x86. The satellite will measure the Earth's magnetic
field from a height of 600-850 km.

The satellite was built on a very low budget which called
for inventing new, cheaper solutions to old problems. This
new technology has caught NASA's attention.

I thought it was interesting because it involves our Ada83
product and it is obviously not a military application.
