ATLANTIS RETURNS TO LAUNCH PAD
After yesterday's aborted journey, the Space Shuttle Atlantis successfully made it to the launch pad on Wednesday. Problems with the computer that controls the crawler forced the technicians to abort the transfer and bring the crawler and shuttle back to the hanger. The shuttle and its 5-astronaut crew are now being prepared launch no earlier than January 19th to install the US-built Destiny laboratory module on space station Alpha.

HUBBLE SEES star formation IN NEARBY GALAXY
New images from the Hubble Space Telescope are of the star formation in Galaxy NGC 6822. Located only 1,630,000 light-years away in the constellation of Sagittarius, the star-forming region is called Hubble-X, and is only 4 million years old. This gas cloud held a fascination for Edwin Hubble, for who the Hubble Space Telescope is named, as he was the first to discover it using the 100-inch telescope at Mt. Wilson Observatory in 1925.
SEA LAUNCH HEADS OUT, GETS READY TO LAUNCH XM SATELLITE
The Odyssey Launch Platform and the Sea Launch Commander are on their way to the Equator, in preparation for launch of the XM-1 satellite. Due to launch on January 8th at 10:35pm GMT, the Zenit-3SL rocket will carry the satellite to Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. Once in position, the XM-1 satellite will provide 100 channels of digital radio throughout the United States.
