Cosmos Rocket Launches Three Satellites
Space Station Commander Waits Patiently
Mars Could Have More water than Previously Thought
COSMOS ROCKET LAUNCHES THREE SATELLITES
A Cosmos-3M rocket successfully launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Northern Russia this morning at 1037 GMT (6:37am EDT). The rocket's main payload was a Russian Nadezhda-M military navigation satellite, and it also carried two microsatellites: the British SNAP-1 and the Chinese Tsinghua-1.
SPACE STATION COMMANDER WAITS PATIENTLY
As the first commander of the International Space Station, Bill Shepherd has been training for five years - 2½ years longer than he expected to. But now, as the launch of the Zvezda living module approaches he could get on with his mission as early as October 30, 2000.
MARS COULD HAVE MORE water THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT
Geochemist Laurie Leshin of Arizona State University believes there's more water on Mars than most scientists believe. Past estimates of Martian water were dependent on the quantity of deuterium - a rare type of Hydrogen - in the atmosphere, and comparing that the amount in the Earth's atmosphere. But Leshin's research using Martian meteorites indicates that the Red planet started off with twice as much deuterium as Earth.
