Starshine '2'



According to Jonathan's Space Report, No. 468,

hea-www.harvard.edu/QEDT/jcm/space/jsr/jsr.html

the STS-108 launch tonight will be carring Starshine 2. Haven't seen or read 
anything about this launch with-in a launch. Does anyone know if this 
Starshine 2 carries a radio, and what the downlink might be?
