CASSINI spacecraft CLEARS ASTEROIDS
The Cassini project marked a milestone in its trek to rendezvous with
Saturn in 2004, clearing the asteroid belt Wednesday. There was
actually little concern that the craft wouldn't make it: the asteroid belt
has lots of debris, but far more empty space.
EUROPAN LIFE MAY BE CLOSE TO SURFACE
Two groups of planetary scientists have warmed to the idea that life
on the icy Jovian Moon Europa may not be limited to a hypothesized
subsurface ocean, but could be also be surprisingly near the surface.
HUBBLE SET TO SHATTER DISTANCE RECORD
Hubble has picked up a mysterious object that could be far, far further
away than anything ever seen before. Interstellar distances are
measured by their "redshift": light from far-off objects is stretched
towards the red end of the spectrum. Currently, the record holders for
distance are a Galaxy with a Redshift of 6.7 and a quasar with a Redshift
of 5.8. The newly discovered object may have a Redshift of 12.
