    HUMBURG (DAP): At least one small dream of mankind seems to be becoming true. For the first time ever, people can contact on your usual telephone number anywhere in the world.

    No matter where you are – in the desert, in the Brazilian rain forest or on board ship in mid-Atlantic, your mobile phone will ring wherever anyone call

    This miracle has been made possible by the U.S. Telecommunications Corporation Iridium, which is owned by a group of companies headed by Motorola.

    The technical basis for opening up what Iridium describes as a “new word of global telephoning” is provided by no fewer than 66 satellites launched one by one since May last year. The satellites make the connection to any suitable mobile phone.

    Admittedly, there was a slight hitch on Sept. 23, the date planned for the commercial launch of the new service. Not all the satellites functioned as planned, so only a few test customers got a chance to try it out. One reason, according to the Wall Street Journal, was software problems.
