Russia launces satellite from submarine

	The paper had a little blurb that Russia launched a German Tubsat-N
satellite using a RSM-54 intercontinental ballistic missile from a
Novomoskovsk submarine in the Barents Sea.  Anyone know any more details
than this?  This seems like a very significant first since it would open up
unlimited launch possibilities making it much easier to obtain desired
orbital parameters, among other things.  Whose idea was this?  What was the
size of this satellite?
