HAMSAT WON'T MAKE IT:

HAMSAT which was to be a co-passenger of a remote
sensing satellite onboard a PSLV  later this month,
will not make the trip. 

An official release from ISRO said here on Wednesday
that the Hamsat was to be launched as an auxialiary
payload using the launch capacity of PSLV. But, during
the ``thermovacuum test of Hamsat, deviations in the
performance of  the Ham payload were observed. After
required corrections, Hamsat will be accomodated on
one of the subsequent flights of PSLV
