New Jovian Moon Might Be Discovered.
July 24, 2000
A few more astronomy clubs, web pages and space societies.
Outergalactic astronomy - http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/outergalacticastronomy
Online club created to be a place for astronomy interested individuals of all ages, all areas of the globe, and all kinds of knowledge-to be able to share information, as well as get helpful advice from "others who know".
The Planetary Society Australian Volunteers - http://www1.tpgi.com.au/users/tps-seti/
Australian members of the US-based Planetary Society. News and research links on:
Planetary science and Mars exploration - http://www1.tpgi.com.au/users/tps-seti/#news
Astrobiology and SETI - http://www1.tpgi.com.au/users/tps-seti/seti.html
and the threat to Earth from asteroids and comets (NEOs) - http://www1.tpgi.com.au/users/tps-seti/spacegd.html
www.101Science.com - Learn more about science, chemistry, biology, electronics, physics, and more. A science Internet directory with special topics, news and science notes for everyone, elementary though graduate school or just the curious.
Midlands astronomy Club, Inc. (MAC) - http://astr.psc.sc.edu/htmlpages/MAC/MAC.html
For over 25 years the MAC has existed to further the general knowledge of astronomy in the Columbia, SC area. This
continuing goal is shared by our members, representing many walks of life. Our members have a great range of expertise, from beginner to advanced, with a few professionals. You could say that we are definitely a group of
enthusiastic amateurs. No matter what degree of experience in astronomy you have, I know that the members will welcome you, and be glad to share their knowledge, and share your knowledge.

NEW JOVIAN Moon MIGHT BE DISCOVERED
Astronomers from the University of Arizona and Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge believe they have discovered a brand new Moon orbiting Jupiter. Only 4.8 km across, the Moon has been designated S/1999 J1 - once it has been confirmed by other observers, it will be given a more formal name.
NASA DELAYS MARS 2003 DECISION
NASA originally announced a press conference for Friday where it would announce its decision on whether to send a high-resolution orbiter or a Pathfinder-like lander to Mars in 2003. A followup press release cancelled the conference stating, "the decision was much more complex and difficult than anticipated and that it will take perhaps one to two weeks longer than planned to make the final decision."
SUPERNOVA FOUND READY TO BLOW
Astronomers at the University of Southhampton believe they've found evidence of a star that's about to go supernova - well, within the next 200 million years anyway. The star, known as KPD1930+2752, is orbited by a White Dwarf star, and the two are expected to collide sometime in the next 200 million years. When they do, the combination will create an explosion visible across the entire Universe. Supernovae of this type are thought to create the heavy materials we find on Earth, including iron and gold.
ARCTIC MARS CONSTRUCTION BEGINS
Construction has gone ahead on the Mars Society's Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station, and the cylindrical mockup Mars base is coming together quickly. The walls and first floor have been erected, and the team is now working to build the second floor, and attach the roof. The "crew" is expected to move into the station by August 5th.
