Genesis On Its Way to Collect Pieces of the Sun

DISCOVERY LAUNCHES ON MISSION STS-105

The Space Shuttle Discovery made a picture-perfect launch Friday as it lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida while thunderstorms approached on the horizon. The shuttle took off at 2110 GMT (5:10pm EDT) carrying 4 astronauts as well as the three members of Expedition 3, who will take up residence on the International Space Station. Discovery will reach the station on Sunday at 1838 GMT (2:38pm EDT). Over the next 10 days, the astronauts will perform two spacewalks to install equipment and prepare the station for upcoming upgrades.

PERSEIDS WILL PUT ON A SHOW SUNDAY

Astronomers are expecting that this weekend's Perseid meteor shower will be quite spectacular. Starting Saturday, August 11 and peaking the morning of Sunday, August 12, anyone watching the sky under optimal conditions should be able to pick out over 80 meteors an hour - even if you live in the glare of the city lights, you should still be able to see many bright meteors. The Perseids are known for producing brightly coloured tails as they streak across the sky.

GENESIS ON ITS WAY TO COLLECT PIECES OF THE SUN

NASA's Genesis spacecraft finally made it off the launch pad on Wednesday after a series of delays made it late by over a week. The spacecraft, which will collect particles of the Sun's solar wind and return them back to Earth, cleared the Cape Canaveral launch pad on board a Boeing Delta II booster at 1613 GMT (12:13pm EDT) - it isn't expected to return home until September 2004.
