NASA Faces Difficult Decision Between Upcoming Mars Missions

COSMONAUTS TEST NEW GLUE FOR MIR

Russian cosmonauts spent 5 hours outside Mir on Friday examining the

exterior of the station for damage, and testing a new "space glue" which

they hope will repair tiny cracks that have developed in the hull. Although

the cosmonauts believe they have stopped valuable air from continuing to leak

out of the station - from the inside - they plan to keep this new sealant on

hand for any new cracks that may develop.

RUSSIAN/US ROCKET PREPARES FOR LAUNCH

In a dramatic symbol of post-cold war teamwork, Lockheed Martin is preparing

to launch the first Atlas III rocket, containing a Russian-built engine. When

developing the new Atlas, Lockheed opened up the contract to build the engine

to companies outside the US, and the winner was NPO Energomash - the same

company that helped launch Sputnik, the first satellite.

ASTRONOMERS REDISCOVER MISSING ASTEROID

Astronomers working at the Minor planet Center in Cambridge announced that they

have "rediscovered" asteroid 719 Albert, last observed in 1911. Although Albert

is a near-Earth object, it will never get any closer than 30.5 million kilometres.

NASA FACES DIFFICULT DECISION BETWEEN UPCOMING MARS MISSIONS

Thanks to last year's failed Mars missions, NASA is now considering between an

orbiter and a rover for its upcoming 2003 mission to the Red Planet. The decision

between which mission to launch, or even to launch a mission at all, is expected

to be made in early July.
