    >According to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Japan's Nissan Motor Co. plans to
    >join the low and medium Earth orbit satellite launch business by 2001.
    >
    >Those small spacecraft are usually launched on large rockets, which for
    >example can accommodate five Iridiums. Nissan won't offer that, of
    >course, but small, solid-fuelled rockets that can put only one satellite
    >into orbit at a time. Launch vehicles like that proposed by Nissan may
    >be in demand later, when satellite operators will have to replace single
    >ageing or malfunctioning satellites at low cost.
    >
    >The development of the Nissan rocket will reportedly cost some �10
    >billion. The launch of a single satellite will be offered at �2 billion
    >- a multiple launch on a larger rocket costs four times that much.
    >Nissan expects annual sales of �200 billion. (c) Sat-ND 1997
