Atlas Stays on the Pad, Shuttle Bumps Back

SETI@home: A Year Old and Two Million Strong

Which Station is Better?

Moon Nuke Plans Released

ATLAS STAYS ON THE PAD, SHUTTLE BUMPS BACK

High winds kept the first Atlas III US/Russian rocket firmly on the ground

yesterday, and pushed its next launch window to Wednesday at 5:37PM EDT

(2237 GMT). Because the same tracking system is required to operate the

Atlas III and the Space Shuttle Atlantis, and it takes 24 hours to switch

vehicles, the shuttle has been bumped back to Friday.

SETI@HOME: A YEAR OLD AND TWO MILLION STRONG

After only a year of being introduced, the SETI@home has now had over two

million users download and install the free alien-hunting screen saver.

And in the past year, the project has amassed over 280,000 years of computing

time for the project, making it the largest network computing effort in human

history. Unfortunately, they still haven't found any aliens.

WHICH STATION IS BETTER?

This article from the Washington Post examines the status of Mir and the

International Space Station. Even though it was designed to be retired

years ago, and suffers from innumerable problems, Mir is still flying high,

and strangely winning the "space station race" against the stalled International

Space Station. This is a great article that examines the underlying causes.

MOON NUKE PLANS RELEASED

It's hard to believe, but in 1958 the U.S. Air Force requested a plan from

scientists on the effects detonating a nuclear bomb on the Moon - to symbolize

American strength in light of recent Russian space advances. Fortunately, the

plan was never carried out: our Moon remains a nuclear free zone. And the US

went on to develop other ways to demonstrate its capabilities in space.
