It's a slow news day, so I thought I'd throw a few exclusive stories your way... enjoy!

How the years go by. In case you hadn't remembered, we're just after 30th anniversary of the landing of Venera 7 on the surface of Venus - the spacecraft ever to send data back from the surface of another planet. To take a quick trip down memory lane, just follow this link and read this special report from Larry Klaes.

Jennifer Laing profiles Dr. Andrew Thomas, Australian-born NASA Astronaut and asks him about his time on the Russian Space Station Mir and forthcoming mission to the International Space Station.

Hurricane Could Delay Delta Launch

HURRICANE COULD DELAY DELTA LAUNCH

Inbound Hurricane Debra is threatening to delay tomorrow's Delta 3 launch from Cape Canaveral. The launch is significant for manufacturer Boeing, because the previous two launches of the newly developed Delta 3 rocket have ended in failure. Boeing has equipped the rocket with a dummy payload, and will spend $85 million of its own money just to demonstrate that the rocket works properly. The launch is scheduled for Wednesday at 11:00am GMT, but could be delayed if the storm arrives early.

SATELLITES WATCH SHIFTING ARCTIC ICE

Thanks to Canada's Radarsat satellite, NASA scientists can peer through the clouds to get a good look at the movement of shifting Arctic ice. The resolution of images produced by Radarsat are 100 times better than any previously taken by other satellites. The images also let the scientists determine the ice's thickness, and track where it thins in the summer.
