Bad Weather Could Change Shuttle Landing Location

Next Shuttle Mission Broken Into Two

Solar Storm Misses the Earth

A Suicidal End for Galileo?

BAD WEATHER COULD CHANGE SHUTTLE LANDING LOCATION

With the radar topology mapping mission complete, the crew of the

space shuttle Endeavour is in final preparations to return to Earth

at 4:50pm EST (2150 UST) today; however, high winds at the Cape

Canaveral landing site could force the crew to head for Edwards Air

Force Base in California. Unfortunately, Edwards weather is bad too,

so they might be forced to use Mojave desert military base.

NEXT SHUTTLE MISSION BROKEN INTO TWO

NASA has confirmed that the Space Shuttle Atlantis will visit the

International Space Station twice in four months. The first mission

on April 13th to perform maintenance on the station, while the

second on August 17th will work to connect the Zvezda and Zarya

modules together, and prepare the station for its first permanent

inhabitants later in the year.

SOLAR STORM MISSES THE EARTH

A giant solar flare erupted from the Sun last week, and sent a

wave of plasma towards the Earth. It appears that the shot was a

near miss, and it passed harmlessly by. Had it hit the Earth, it

could have disrupted communications and power supplies. The Sun

reaches its maximum period of energy this year, so we can expect

more flares to come our way.

A SUICIDAL END FOR GALILEO?

Nearing the very end of its operational lifetime, NASA is

considering how best to end Galileo's mission before it runs out

of fuel, dead in space. Perhaps a suicidal plunge into Jupiter's

atmosphere, or a crash-landing into one of the Jovian moons. They

don't want to crash it into Europa; however, as it could still be

carrying microbes from Earth that could contaminate possible life

there.
