Poor Weather Delays Shuttle Landing

Hubble Captures Image of Red Spider Nebula

POOR WEATHER DELAYS SHUTTLE LANDING

Originally scheduled to land today, it looks like Atlantis will remain in space at least another day because of poor weather at Cape Canaveral. NASA will try again tonight, but failing that, try again on Wednesday. The backup landing site at Edwards Airforce Base, California, is operational, but shuttle managers will use that as a last resort (because of the extra cost to transport the shuttle back to Florida).

HUBBLE CAPTURES IMAGE OF RED SPIDER NEBULA

The newest image released from the Hubble Space Telescope shows the Red Spider Nebula - a fiery swirl of gas wrapped around a dying star in the constellation Sagittarius. As the super-hot star approaches the end of its life, it's shedding its outer material into space with solar winds as fast as 16 million kph, creating the nebula.
