SOMBRERO PHOTOS AMAZE ASTRONOMERS
A telescope in the Paranal Observatory obtained incredibly clear
and detailed pictures of the spectacular Sombrero galaxy, located
50 million light years from Earth. The Galaxy has an unusually
large central bulge of stars, mysterious dust rings and at the heart
of the Galaxy is believed to be a massive black hole. The Paranal's
Sombrero images rival the quality of those taken by the Hubble Space
Telescope orbiting the earth.
COMET HUNTER CONTOUR TO EAT COSMIC DUST
The Comet Nuclear Tour (Contour) spacecraft is slated to fly by the
nuclei of two or three comets starting in 2003. Instruments on
board the mostly solar-powered robot spacecraft will analyze gasses
and dust collected from the comets while a camera snaps close-ups of
their nuclei. The different compositions of the 3 comets should give
scientists more information on the diversity of Comet structure.
MIT STUDENTS TO KEEP MARS PLANE PLANS ALIVE?
NASA has given up the plan to fly an airplane on Mars in 2003 on the
100th anniversary of the Wright brothers' first flight. Students
from MIT are hoping to keep the project alive with private funding,
modifying the project to make the it less of a scientific mission
and more of a technology demonstration, celebrating the centennial.
