Galileo Makes a Low-Altitude Pass Over Io

Stardust Begins Collecting Space Dust

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.
