The first satellites built by South Africa and Denmark were launched into orbit Tuesday, along with a big U.S. defense research satellite. A long period without contact caused anxious hours for the builders of South Africa's Sunsat, but communication was finally established. The U.S. Argos and the Danish Orsted satellites were doing well, officials said. The satellites went up on a Delta II rocket at 2:29 a.m. after 11 delays in recent weeks.
