SPACE telescope TAKES PLUTO'S TEMPERATURE

Pluto's cold, but the question is: how cold? Using the European Space Agency's Infrared space telescope ISO, a team from the Observatoire de Paris learned that Pluto's temperature changes across the surface. They found variations from -210 degrees Celsius to -235. They believe that the varying temperature may give insights into the planet's geology.

ASTRONOMERS CAPTURE NEW IMAGES OF MERCURY

Using some of the most powerful Telescopes on Earth, Astronomers at Boston University have produced extremely detailed images of the surface of Mercury. These are the first new images of the planet's surface since the Mariner 10 spacecraft visited back in the mid-70s. Photographing the planet is difficult because it is always near the Sun in the sky, and only visible in the dawn or twilight hours.

ASTRONAUTS PROVIDE THEIR FEEDBACK ON THE SPACE STATION

Now that they've spent some time in the new International Space Station, the crew of the Space Shuttle Atlantis had some feedback for NASA at a recent press conference. Their biggest request? More windows. In general, they wanted a station that felt more like home to help crews handle long missions.
