READING THE FAR SIDE OF THE SUN
Scientists have discovered a way to predict solar storms that originate
on the far side of the Sun by analyzing sound waves bouncing across
its surface. Solar physicists say that measuring the speed of the
waves should give them a one to two week warning of potential
disturbances, which may affect satellite transmissions.
IMAGES FROM DYING stars TEACH Astronomers ABOUT EARTH
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have observed 27 dying
stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a nearby galaxy. The
observations will increase the understanding of the "carbon cycle"
which in turn, will help explain the Genesis of our Galaxy and life
CANADIAN satellite PLANS ANNOUNCED
The Canadian Space Agency announced its intention to build an
all-Canadian science satellite to study the chemical processes
involved in ozone depletion. SCISAT-1, contracted out to Bristol
Aerospace, will be the first science satellite built by Canada since
1971. The intended launch date for the environmental study is 2002.
