NASA ANNOUNCES NEW MARS STRATEGY

NASA announced that it plans to send six major missions to Mars over the next ten years, using a series of robotic explorers. At an annual cost of $450 million, the agency will dispatch a combination of orbiting spacecraft and landers until 2010, when it will attempt a sample return mission, to bring pieces of the Red planet back home to Earth. The announcement revealed nothing about the possibility of human exploration of Mars.

NEAR GETS REALLY CLOSE TO EROS

The NEAR-Shoemaker spacecraft descended to an altitude of only 5kms above the surface of asteroid Eros to take the most detailed pictures yet of the asteroid - the latest photographs show objects with four times the resolution of the best photos so far. scientists at NASA hope to see small clues on the surface of the asteroid to help understand the processes that shaped the surface of Eros. After the close visit, NEAR fired its thrusters and raised itself to a higher, safer orbit.
