Shuttle Likely to Land in California

Cassini Delivers New Images of Jupiter

Astronomers Believe asteroid Estimates are Too Low

SHUTTLE LIKELY TO LAND IN CALIFORNIA

After two days of weather delays due to high winds at Cape Canaveral, it looks like the Space Shuttle Discovery is finally going to be able to land; unfortunately, it will have to be at Edwards Air Force Base in California. The weather there was a little dicey yesterday too, but the forecast for today is much better. The first landing window is at 8:59pm GMT, with the second at 10:35pm GMT. The shuttle has enough fuel and supplies to stay in orbit until Wednesday at the latest.

CASSINI DELIVERS NEW IMAGES OF JUPITER

The latest set of images of Jupiter sent back by the Cassini spacecraft show great detail of the storm systems on the planet, including two storms colliding to become one larger storm (each storm is half the size of the entire Earth). Astronomers believe that it was a similar merging of storms that created the Great Red Spot, a hurricane that has lasted for 300 years. Cassini is approaching Jupiter for its gravitational assist flyby, which will hurl it on its way to Saturn.

ASTRONOMERS BELIEVE asteroid ESTIMATES ARE TOO LOW

According to recent estimates, there are 750-900 Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) capable of causing mass destruction on the Earth. But new figures calculated by a researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) thinks these numbers should be revised upward to more than 1,100 asteroids. The new data was produced by the LINEAR system; an automated telescope designed to detect the space rocks.
