BAIKONOUR, KAZAKHSTAN:  A missile SS-18 ("Satan") with a British satellite instead of a nuclear bomb in its head takes off from the Baikonour cosmodrom in western Kazakhstan, 21 April 1999. It was a test launch, starting a new joint Russo-Ukrainian project called "Dnepr" for the conversion use of strategic nuclear missiles for peaceful commercial launches.
