Shuttle Problems Will Delay Astronauts' Return

Jupiter's North Pole Aurora

SHUTTLE PROBLEMS WILL DELAY ASTRONAUTS' RETURN

NASA engineers have uncovered damage in the Space Shuttle Discovery's thrusters which will need to be replaced. This unexpected problem will keep the shuttle on the pad for an extra two weeks, while engineers make the repairs. The crew of space station Alpha was supposed to catch a lift back to Earth on Discovery in February, but now it looks like they'll have to stay in orbit extra two weeks - this isn't too concerning, they have plenty of supplies.

JUPITER'S NORTH POLE AURORA

New photos from the Hubble Space Telescope show a beautiful curtain of glowing gas wrapped around Jupiter's north pole. This aurora is formed in the same way as our own Northern Lights, when the particles from the Sun interact with the magnetic field of the planet. What's also interesting, is that it's possible to see the glowing footprints of three of Jupiter's moons, Io, Ganymede, and Europa.
