NASA TRACKING satellite LAUNCHES

NASA's newest Tracking and Data Relay Satellite-H (TDRS-H) was launched successfully on Friday atop an Atlas IIA rocket. The Cape Canaveral launch was delayed one day to review data from the Centaur upper stage booster, and then delayed 18 minutes to allow boats to clear the launch area. The TDRS-H will relay communications between the Space Shuttle and ground control for upcoming missions.

PROTON CONTINUES TO PERFORM WITH LATEST LAUNCH

A Proton rocket successfully launched a Sirius-1 satellite from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Saturday: the second Proton launch in less than a week, and the third in less than a month. These successful Proton launches are a prelude to the July 12th launch of the Zvezda service module for the International Space Station, which has been delayed for two years. The Sirius-1 satellite will broadcast digital radio to cars in the United States.

FLASHLINE ARCTIC RESEARCH STATION COMPLETED

The Mars Society recently announced it has completed fabrication of the Flashline Arctic Research Station - a simulated Mars habitat. The completed structure will be disassembled and flown to Devon Island in the Canadian arctic, where it will be reassembled. Assuming good weather continues, the team hopes to begin Mars simulation activities before the end of the month.

PANEL DECIDES GALILEO'S FATE

A Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration has tentatively decided that Galileo's final action will be a suicidal plunge into Jupiter's atmosphere. The panel considered crashing the probe into one of Jupiter's moons, but decided against it because of concerns that organisms on the probe could contaminate the moon. Galileo is currently funded until the end of the year, after which the probe may begin its final mission.
