SHUTTLE APPROACHING THE SPACE STATION
After yesterday's successful launch, the Space Shuttle Discovery is closing the distance with space station Alpha. The docking is scheduled for Saturday at 0536 GMT (12:36am EST) at which point the Expedition 2 crew will begin the handover of the station from Expedition 1, who have been on board for 5 months. Discovery's flight crew will perform two spacewalks to continue the work on the recently installed Destiny module.

ARIANE 5 CARRIES DOUBLE satellite LOAD TO SPACE
An Ariane 5 booster successfully launched two satellites Thursday evening from the European Space Agency (ESA) launch center in Kourou, French Guiana. On board was a Eurobird telecommunications satellite built by Alcatel Space for Eutelsat and a BSAT-2a television broadcast satellite built by Orbital Sciences Corporation. This marks the third launch of the year for Arianespace and the sixth commercial launch of the Ariane 5. Arianespace is hampered by delays from satellite manufacturers, and doesn't expect another launch before June.
