-The world sits in anticipation as Project Moonbeam enters the final stages of pre-launch preparation.
-Dr. Randolph Koller, head engineer on Project Moonbeam, is reported missing, presumed dead, after his boat is caught in a storm during a fishing trip in the Carribean.
-An attempt by Santa Barbaran police to search Dr. Koller's residence for more information surrounding his disappearance is surprised to find the apartment ransacked. Finding no clues, the chief of police promptly calls off the investigation, issuing a statement that the police should be more concerned with solving real crimes than going through a dead man's belongings.
-Sources report an increase in the number of armed security on a campus owned by Consolidated Hydraulics And Oscillating Switches, Inc. in Caracas. Locals claim to have seen a dark, mysterious form gliding above the rooftops around near the area recently, though such claims are unfounded and have been widely dismissed.
-A fight broke out at an upscale Miami nightclub, leaving three people, including the club's owner dead. Witnesses claim a single assailant broke in through the back, and violently interrogated the club's owner before throwing him to his death. Police suspect the murders may be linked to international organized crime. The club's owner, Russian citizen Andriy Yushckenko, more commonly known by the pseudonym "Aleksey" had been previously tried and acquitted of the murder of an American tourist in Rome nine months ago.
-For about an hour, all radio and television broadcasts in Hong Kong were disrupted due to a massive increase in locally emitted radio waves emanating from a Consolidated Hydraulics facility. Authorities and CHAOS technicians were quickly able to clear the air and resume regular broadcasting. CHAOS CEO Victor Cain was quick to apologize for the communication disruptions, which some sources are linking to the final phases of the Moonbeam launch.
-Residents of Caracas are in disbelief after an explosion tore through a CHAOS facility and sent shockwaves through the city. Officials are blaming the explosion on a gas leak, and police and military have cordoned the area off while clean-up is underway. Victor Cain is quoted as saying that this is a sad day for the families of the dozens of facility employees who are still unaccounted for.

Dr. Ada Vogel, local expert on feline/canine cohabitation is quoted as saying, "It's unbelievable. There has only been evidence of such an occurance maybe, once, twice in this century alone. This is the first recorded incident of a cat and dog enjoying each others' company in the post-war era."
