Mathematical Model Helps scientists Understand Venus Climate
ROOKIE SPACEWALKERS "ON TOP OF THE WORLD"
The second spacewalk for the STS-102 mission went like clockwork, with the two 'rookie' spacewalkers Andy Thomas and Paul Richards completing all tasks ahead of schedule. Jennifer Laing reports on a day which saw the two astronauts end up at the top of one of the International Space Station's solar arrays, a dizzying 90 feet high.

MATHEMATICAL MODEL HELPS scientists UNDERSTAND Venus CLIMATE
A new mathematical model of the surface of Venus has been developed which helps show how the hot, dry surface of the planet has reacted to temperature changes in the past. In NASA's Magellen mission to Venus in 1990, scientists discovered patterns of cracks on the 500-degree surface of the planet. The newly developed model shows that there had to be periods of heating and cooling over a range of 200 degrees to cause this kind of cracking.
