ATLANTIS REACHES orbit SAFELY

The Space Shuttle Atlantis finally lifted off yesterday at 2313 GMT (6:13pm EST) on its mission to deliver the US-built Destiny laboratory module to space station Alpha. Atlantis and its 5-astronaut crew will dock with space station Alpha on Friday shortly before 1700 GMT (12:00pm EST). The astronauts will then begin the arduous task of attaching the $1.4 billion laboratory to the station.

CLUSTER satellites BEGIN OPERATIONS

The four European Space Agency (ESA) Cluster spacecraft were launched from Kazakhstan six months ago, but they've only now just begun to gather scientific data. During the next two years, the quartet of satellites will work with the ESA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft to explore the interaction between Earth’s magnetic field and the electrically charged particles swept along in the solar wind.
