ENDEAVOUR LANDS, SAFE AND SOUND
The Space Shuttle Endeavour made a picture-perfect landing
yesterday at Cape Canaveral at 6:22pm EST (2322 UST). High
crosswinds at the Cape forced the shuttle to delay its landing by
1.5 hours, but as the Sun went down, the winds disappeared.
Mission control congratulated the crew on a highly successful
mission of mapping the world.

GALILEO MAKES A LOW-ALTITUDE PASS OVER IO
Nearing the end of its operational lifetime, the Galileo
spacecraft made another pass over Jupiter's volcanic Moon Io, at
an altitude of only 200kms. This pass was more successful than
previous attempts, as the high radiation didn't cause any glitches
in the computer system.
STARDUST BEGINS COLLECTING SPACE DUST
The Stardust spacecraft has begun collecting minute particles of
space dust, which scientists believe streams into our solar system
from other stars. Stardust will continue to collect the particles
until the end of May, and then it will collect again during 2002,
and finally it will trail a Comet in 2004 collecting even more
particles. The aerogel container will be returned to Earth in 2006.
