TITO IS CONFIDENT HE'LL GET TO FLY

Although the Russian government seems likely to deorbit the Mir spacestation shortly, American businessman Dennis Tito still feels confident that he'll get a chance to fly in space; if not on Mir, then to the International Space Station. One possible mission at this point is to go to Mir in January to help prepare it for descent, and the other option is to help provide the International Space Station with a Soyuz escape capsule. Either way, if he hasn't left the Earth by June 30, 2001, the deal's off, and Russia doesn't get any of the $20 million in an escrow account.

SCIENTISTS BELIEVE THEY MAY HAVE BACTERIA FROM SPACE

An international team of scientists have found living microorganisms in the upper reaches of our atmosphere - life they think could have come from space. Using a scientific balloon, the scientists pulled the bacteria from an altitude of 16km, and learned that it's unlike anything else on Earth. This discovery, which still needs a thorough scientific review, supports the theory of panspermia, where microbial life reached the Earth from space, on board comets and asteroids.

ENDEAVOUR IS READY FOR LIFTOFF

With the Space Shuttle Discovery only recently on the ground, NASA is getting ready to send Endeavour up to complete the next stage in the construction of the International Space Station. Endeavour is due to launch on its 10-day journey on Thursday at 3:06am GMT. Once in orbit and docked with the station, the astronauts will complete 3 spacewalks to attach the station's giant solar arrays - the array and their truss will be the largest and heaviest component so far.
