SpaceWatch Presents:

AN ALL-NEW "DEEP SKY"

LIVE TODAY AT 8:00PM EST (01:00 UST)

with James Schefter

How did the USA manage to come from behind the USSR in the 1960s

and put a man on the Moon first? James Schefter, author of Race:

The Uncensored Story of How America Beat Russia to the Moon, has

a theory or two on that one! An on-scene correspondent for time

and Life covering the Gemini and Apollo misssions, James ghosted

numerous first-person articles for astronauts, was the first

reporter allowed into Mission Control during the Apollo 13 accident

and trained with the moon-bound astronauts in the jungles of Panama,

the volcanoes on Iceland, and took the lunar rover for a spin in

the Mojave Desert!

NASA GIVES RUSSIANS A DEADLINE ON SPACE STATION

NASA has told the Russian Space Agency: enough is enough. If they

don't launch the Zvezda service module for the International Space

Station by July, NASA will put the finishing touches on their own

service module, and launch it by the end of the year. NASA

Administrator Daniel Goldin said that he wants to see if they have

"a fire in the belly about getting the service module up."

ATLAS LAUNCHES satellite FOR SPANISH TV STATION

A Lockheed Martin Atlas rocket roared up from Cape Canaveral on

Thursday at 3:30pm PST (23:30 UST) carrying a French-built HISPASAT

satellite. The satellite joins two others already in orbit, and

will help broadcast Spanish television to both Europe and North

America. There were no problems with the launch, and the satellite

is now moving to its final geosynchronous orbit position.
