Marburg Virus Reaches Angolan Capital of Luanda

The Marburg virus that has killed 98 people in Angola's northern province of Uige, has reached the capital, according to MSF (Doctors without Borders). Its new victims in Luanda are said to be a teenage boy and an Italian doctor, both of whom were recently in Uige. At least three other cases of the disease have been diagnosed in Luanda.

Japan's rocket success and talk of manned space mission

AP: "North Korea, meanwhile, has perhaps had an even deeper impact on Japan's space program in recent years.

The perceived nuclear threat from the enigmatic communist nation, which launched a Taepodong 1 missile over Japan's main island in 1998, has provided a strong impetus for Tokyo to beef up its space capabilities.

Having their own launch technology validated puts a serious edge on the China/North Korea/Japan military competition and supremecy for space. -- Space & Technology Editor
