Arctic Mars Base Damaged in Parachute Drop.
NASA TV will have live coverage of the Zvezda service module launch on board a Russian Proton rocket. Coverage starts at 5:30pm EDT. Keep your eyes peeled for the Pizza Hut logo which should be on the side of the rocket. If you don't get NASA TV on your satellite dish, you can also watch it on the web at NASA's site (http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/nasatv/) or at Broadcast.com (http://www.broadcast.com/events/nasa).
If Zvezda makes it into orbit, this will be a real milestone for the development of the International Space Station. Wish them luck!

ARCTIC MARS BASE DAMAGED IN PARACHUTE DROP
Development of the Mars Society's Flashline Arctic Mars Base is on hold after parts of the base were damaged in a recent parachute drop. Four out of five equipment platforms dropped without problem, but the fifth, containing a crane and fiberglass panels, landed too hard and destroyed the contents. Society President Bob Zubrin said it was too early to know what impact this will have on the development schedule - the base was originally scheduled to open July 20.
CASSINI AND GALILEO PREPARED FOR SCIENCE TEAMWORK
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab are preparing the Cassini and Galileo spaceprobes for five months of collaborative scientific work. The two spacecraft will begin sharing data about Jupiter in October, and complete their dual mission in February. They will observe several Jovian elements simultaneously, including the solar wind and a solar eclipse on Io.
