      Two communications satellites began their first full day in orbit Saturday
      after they were launched Friday by Western Europe's 116th Ariane rocket in
      space. The Ariane 44L rocket equipped with four strap-on boosters -- the
      most
      powerful in the Ariane-4 series -- blasted off at 7.44 p.m. local time from
      the
      European Space Agency launch center in French Guiana on the northeast coast
      of
      South America. Friday's launch was the first of 13 scheduled Ariane
      missions
      for 1999.
