25,000 Black Holes Lurk at Center of Milky Way.
AN ALL-NEW COSMIC VISIONS
SpaceWatch's executive producer Christopher Trela never thought he
would actually travel into space, but intern Cara Hirsch offered him the
next best thing: a weightless ride on NASA's KC-135 airplane, the
infamous Vomit Comet. Join us for a first-person account of the entire
trip: from preparation, to weightlessness, to the grim denouement when
Cara demonstrates why the KC-135 has earned its name. It's thrills and
spills (into a barf bag) as we HURL INTO SPACE!

EXOTIC PHOTOS OF MARTIAN TERRAIN
Photo mosaics of Mars Global Surveyor footage will help scientists
understand what materials make up the exotic multi-layers of the Red
Planet's South Pole. The southern regions are among the most exotic
landscapes in the solar system.
25,000 black holes LURK AT CENTER OF MILKY WAY
An Ohio State University Astronomer suggests that up to 25,000 black
holes are hidden in the Milky Way Galaxy, "buzzing like flies around the
center". scientists think that the Milky Way is filled with black holes
created by exploding stars, and that as they consume other objects,
they lose their ability to maintain their orbit and fall to the center.
MIR IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS
A new, commercial era for the aging Mir space station began on
Thursday as a Soyuz spacecraft carrying two cosmonauts successfully
docked. MirCorp announced a new round of funding for the company
and another mission later this year. They planned an automatic docking,
but flight controllers directed the cosmonauts to take over the last few
meters, concerned about possible failure with the "Kurs" automated
docking system. The cosmonauts will spend least 45 days restoring the
station, which had been uninhabited since last August.
