THE LATEST FROM SPACEWATCH
Did you know that we have better topographic maps of Mars than of

of remedying that situation right now with their radar topography
mission. Their project manager, Howard Eisen, is this week's guest
on an all-new MISSION CONTROL, OVER Talk live with Howard, Tuesday

NEAR REACHES EROS
The romantic Near Earth asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) spacecraft kept

course correction that brought it into orbit around the
peanut-shaped spacerock. The first photos returned show detailed
images of the asteroid's surface, including large craters, and even
boulders held by its weak gravity.
NASA CONTINUES TO WRESTLE WITH THRUSTER PROBLEM ON ENDEAVOUR
The 11-day Space Shuttle radar mapping mission is going well, with
the equipment performing as expected, except for one component:
the thruster at the end of the radar boom designed to keep the
shuttle parallel to the ground. A glitch has forced them to use
1.5 times as much fuel. NASA is considering its options, which
include not using the thrusters, and attempting to fix the problem

MISSING RUSSIAN spacecraft FOUND
After the successful launch and re-entry of an experimental booster
rocket, Russian officials were unable to locate its landing position
to recover it. The spacecraft, called the Fregat, went missing
because of malfunctioning radio beacons and a heavy snowstorm. A
satellite attached to the Fregat is still missing.
