ATLANTIS LIFTS OFF... FINALLY

The Space Shuttle Atlantis blasted into orbit this morning on its 10-day

mission to restock the International Space Station. The shuttle is

expected to catch up with the station on Sunday. The launch went off

without a hitch this morning, but only after it had been delayed on

three previous occasions by high winds in the launch area.

TAKE A VIRTUAL FLIGHT THROUGH THE UNIVERSE

Using data captured by the Anglo-Australian Observatory's telescope,

astronomers have created a virtual three-dimensional map of the Universe,

containing over 100,000 Galaxies - a number they hope to increase to

250,000 by 2001. The 3D map was used to create an animation of "flying"

through the Universe, from galactic cluster to galactic cluster.

ASTRONOMERS WORKING ON THEIR WISH LIST

The National Academy of Sciences is expected to release a report on

Friday describing which astronomy projects they believe should be funded

in the coming years. At the top of the list is the Next Generation Space

Telescope (NGST) which will be launched in 2008, and provide views of the

Universe 10-100 times better than Hubble. Other projects include ones to

study the evolution of galaxies, the evolution of black holes, and improve

the search for extra-solar planets.

GALILEO ASSISTS NEW UNDERSTANDING OF IO

New images of Io from the Galileo spacecraft have provided some of the

best views yet of Jupiter's most active moon: lakes of liquid lava,

volcanic fissures, giant calderas. Astronomers have even discovered a

volcano that may be moving across the surface of the moon. Since it was

first discovered by Voyager in 1979, the Volcano appears to have traveled

as much as 95 km across the surface of the moon.
