Florida Today Space Online had an article May 10, 1999 entitled "The Curse of Slick Six: Fact or Fiction? No mission launched from site has ever been successful" by Roger Guillemette. It is about Space Launch Complex 6 (SLC-6, aka "Slick 6") at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, one of several space launch complexes there. Here is the URL: http://www.flatoday.com/space/explore/stories/1999/051099a.htm I heard today ABC-TV (USA) promoting their national evening newscast for Thursday, May 27,1999 "ABC World News Tonight". They are going to broadcast a feature on "the billions lost on Slick 6". I thought some might like to watch that. -- Jake Rees Burbank, Calif.
