SPACE SUGAR DISCOVERED

Astronomers have discovered evidence of simple sugar molecules located in a giant cloud of dust and gas near the center of the Milky Way. The discovery was made using the National Science Foundation's 12 meter radio telescope. Finding this space sugar encourages the possibility that the precursors to life are formed in early solar systems - even before the planets have formed.

RADIO SPECTRUM PROTECTED FOR ASTRONOMY

Delegates to the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC 2000) voted to protect a range of the radio spectrum for the exclusive use of radio astronomers; the frequencies between 71 and 275 gigahertz that they currently use. This protection will help reduce the number of false signals produced by Earth and space-based transmitters.

SPACE INDUSTRY REVENUES TO INCREASE BY 90% IN FIVE YEARS

Even though we haven't been back to the moon, and a human mission to Mars is at least 10 years away, the space industry is still growing at a healthy clip, according to a new report released by the International Space Business Council (ISBC), a trade association promoting the business interests of the space industry. The industry gained $87 billion in revenue for 1999, and received a total of $9 billion in venture capital. The revenue is expected to grow by 90% over the next 5 years.

BOEING AND Lockheed Martin AWARDED LAUNCH CONTRACTS

NASA has awarded Boeing and Lockheed Martin contracts to launch up to 70 rockets over the next decade. Boeing won firm contracts for three launches, and options for five more. The deal is far from certain, though, and the rest of launches could still be awarded to other companies if they can provide vehicles capable of launching 1,500 kgs into low-Earth orbit.
