GALILEO COMPLETES Callisto FLYBY

NASA's Galileo spacecraft completed its closest approach to Jupiter's Moon Callisto, when it passed only 138 kilometres above the surface of the Moon earlier this week. Although the Galileo mission was supposed to wrap up in 1997, it's still working well, and has now completed 31 Moon flybys, including several which were dangerously close to Jupiter's intense radiation field. In 2003, the spacecraft will be intentionally crashed into Jupiter to gather as much data as possible before it's crushed by the pressure.

ARM PROBLEMS DELAY NEXT SHUTTLE FLIGHT

Problems with the International Space Station's new robot arm have forced NASA to push back the anticipated launch date of the Space Shuttle Atlantis to July. With the launch of STS-104 pushed back, the rest of the shuttle fleet will probably be pushed back as well; Discovery's STS-105 won't likely launch until August. After installation, the Canadian-built arm developed electronic problems in its elbow which have stopped astronauts from fully testing it.

TERRA WATCHES AIR POLLUTION FROM SPACE

NASA's recently launched Terra spacecraft have captured some of the most detailed images of air pollution ever taken. Circling the Earth 16 times a day, the Terra spacecraft monitors the atmosphere for sources of carbon monoxide (CO) produced through the burning of fossil fuels. These images show dramatic features, such as clouds of CO moving from grassland fires in Africa to Australia in fairly high concentrations.
