Recreating the Big Bang.
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
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
