Hi everyone,

A few quick notes before it's onto the news.

1. The Space Shuttle Endeavour is ready to go for tomorrow's launch

at 9:30am PST (1730 UST). The weather looks good, and nothing seems

to be broken yet. I think she'll make it into orbit this time. If

you want to find out more about the mission, or tune in to watch

the launch, just visit a special page I created for the mission,

with links to places to watch it online. I'll update the page as

the mission continues, so stay tuned.

RECREATING THE BIG BANG

Swiss physicists believe they have recreated the kind of matter

that existed 1/100,000th of a second after the Big Bang, by slamming

iron ions together in the giant particle accelerator at CERN. In

this fundamental soup, temperatures are so hot - 100,000 times

hotter than the center of the Sun - that quarks float around

individually.

RUSSIA CAN'T FIND EXPERIMENTAL SPACECRAFT

Russia announced the successful launch of an experimental new

upper stage rocket yesterday, but it went missing after returning

to Earth. The "Fregat" accelerator block, launched from the

Baikonur cosmodrome, lifted to orbit, and then orbited 5 times

before going missing. Russia considers the launch a success, even

though they can't find it.

ASTRO-E GOES MISSING AFTER LAUNCH

A Japanese M-5 rocket carrying the Astro-E X-ray satellite failed

to reach the correct altitude after launch yesterday, and likely

sent the observatory crashing back into the atmosphere to burn up.

The $105 million Astro-E was built by a Japanese/US consortium,

and was designed to study the "colours" of X-ray light.

SOHO IS THE WORLD'S MOST SUCCESSFUL Comet HUNTER

In addition to its imaging work of the sun, SOHO is quite a

distinguished Comet hunter. During its mission, the Solar and

Heliospheric Observatory has found 100 comets and counting. SOHO

is so lucky because it has the best seat in the house to watch

comets in their final moments as they plunge into the Sun and

burn up.
