Thruster Problem Could Shorten Endeavour's Mapping Mission

Proton Launch Successful
THRUSTER PROBLEM COULD SHORTEN ENDEAVOUR'S MAPPING MISSION
Although the mission started out perfectly, the crew of the space
shuttle Endeavour have encountered a problem that could shorten
their radar mapping by one day. The radar boom deployed successfully,
but a leak in the thruster at the end of the boom has forced the
crew to use extra fuel to keep it stable. At this rate, the mission
will have to end 8 hours early.

NEAR WILL ARRIVE AT EROS TODAY
Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Near Earth asteroid
Rendezvous (NEAR) mission is about to reach its target - the
asteroid Eros. The spacecraft will fire its thrusters to slow its
relative velocity to Eros, to place it into an orbit around the
asteroid. After a viewing the asteroid from several different
altitudes, NASA will try to touch down gently on the surface, and
then lift off again.
PROTON LAUNCH SUCCESSFUL
With the Kazakhstan launch ban lifted, a Russian Proton rocket
booster successfully launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome on
Saturday. This is the first successful launch of a Proton since
the crash in October, and very important to prove that the glitches
in the booster have been worked out. It was carrying an Indonesian
commercial television satellite, Garuda-1.
