SALT CRYSTALS IN meteorite DATE FROM THE EARLY SOLAR SYSTEM
Scientists at the University of Manchester and the Natural History Museum in London have performed experiments on a meteorite containing salt crystals, and have determined that it was probably created within two million years of the solar system's formation. This makes these salt crystals some of the oldest known chemicals in the solar system. The meteorite was discovered in Morocco in 1998.
AURORA light SHOW BEGINS
Thanks to the powerful solar storm currently passing the Earth, northern regions are reported beautiful auroras last night (also known as the Northern Lights). A coronal mass ejection (CME) was discovered by solar observatories to heading for Earth on June 6, and triggered auroras best seen from Northern Asia. The solar wind has now declined, however, and scientists anticipate the best light shows are now past.
ARIANESPACE SIGNS GIANT SPACE STATION DEAL
Arianespace announced on Wednesday that it has landed the largest launch services contract in history of Europe's space industry. The deal is currently confirmed for nine Ariane 5 flights to carry the Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), which will resupply the International Space Station with fuel, water and other cargo. The first flight is scheduled for late 2003, and the contract extends until 2014.
