COSMIC VISIONS IS STICKING ROCKETS ON AIRPLANES!

QUICK, CALL CHUCK YEAGER!!

When you picture a rocket, a long cylinder on a launch pad usually comes

to mind. But when the first advanced rockets were developed, they were

intended to power airplanes. NASA has been working for decades on

X-planes, experimental planes that are often powered by rockets, to push

the envelope or speed and design. A rocket plane helped Chuck Yeager

break the sound barrier and the X-15 pilots touch the edge of space. And

as the need for reusable launch vehicles becomes more acute, rocket

planes are just the ticket.

Ulysses' Chance Encounter with Longest Comet on Record

Hubble Looks into Eye of Planetary Nebula

Planetary Alignment Begins Tonight

ULYSSES' CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH LONGEST Comet ON RECORD

A new way to study comets, and possibly a new area of science, was

opened up when the Ulysses spacecraft was bombarded by ionized

particles. The particles turned out to be the 300 million-mile vapor tail of

Comet Hyakutake. The encounter revealed that the tail was much, much

bigger than expected, about three times the distance from the Earth to

the Sun.

HUBBLE LOOKS INTO EYE OF PLANETARY NEBULA

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has photographed striking images of

unusual planetary nebula, NGC 6751. The hot star at the center ejected

gas thousands of years ago, forming the nebula. Planetary nebulae are not

planets, but appear as such in small telescopes.

PLANETARY ALIGNMENT BEGINS TONIGHT

A stunning planetary display begins tonight as Jupiter, Saturn and Mars

gather around a slender crescent moon. At 8pm Eastern, the planets will

converge in a tight circle just off the side of the crescent moon. Though

alarmists call it a sinister omen, these sorts of alignments are not a rare

event, and occur every few years with no effect on denizens of Earth.
