Strange Images of Martian Terrain.
THE Hubble Space Telescope IS TEN!
It's hard to believe that we understood space at all before the Hubble was
launched. We've probably learned more about the universe in the last ten
years than we have in all of history up to that point thanks to this one
instrument. We are celebrating this milestone all week with special
streaming Hubble segments.

SHUTTLE TEAM WORKING FOR LAUNCH NEXT WEEK
After being foiled for the third time, Space Shuttle Atlantis was looking
at mid-may for its next opportunity to launch a mission to the
International Space Station. But NASA will find out today if a hurricane
satellite launch set for Wednesday can be bumped for the shuttle's ISS
mission. If not, Atlantis is looking at around may 18th for their launch.
STRANGE IMAGES OF MARTIAN TERRAIN
Season changes are reflected in the strange new images of the Martian
south polar cap and a crater in the Northern Hemisphere. Each region is
being photographed by NASA's Mars Global Surveyor, currently orbiting
STARDUST FINDS INTERSTELLAR ORGANIC MATERIAL
A chemical analysis of interstellar dust particles taken by the Stardust
spacecraft produces a confusing result: these particles consist mostly of
3-dimensionally cross-linked organic macro-molecules, resembling a tar-like
substance rather than minerals. To date, the CIDA (Cometary and
Interstellar Dust Analyzer) onboard the NASA spacecraft Stardust has
been hit by 5 interstellar dust particles.
