STS-99 Space Shuttle Reference Guide

To help you keep track of the upcoming Space Shuttle launch, I've

put together a special reference guide with information and links

to all the important aspects of the mission, including photos, NASA

information, and links to other articles and stories about the mission.

I've also got a couple of references to sites hosting NASA TV, so

you can watch the launch live through the Internet. As with the

lunar eclipse, I'll try to find as many different locations as I

can, so if one is slow, you can link to another.

Potential Engine Problem Could Delay Endeavour

POTENTIAL ENGINE PROBLEM COULD DELAY ENDEAVOUR

A post-flight investigation of the Space Shuttle Discovery after

the Hubble servicing mission turned up a potentially deadly flaw

in one of the engines. Had it been more severe, the shuttle could

have been destroyed during launch. NASA is trying to understand

the severity of this problem, and its possible effect on

Endeavour - they may decide to push the launch back to February 9th.

ASTRONAUTS ARRIVE IN THE CAPE FOR SHUTTLE MISSION

The Space Shuttle Endeavour astronauts arrived in Cape Canaveral

yesterday in preparation for Monday's launch. The 11-day radar

topology mapping mission will provide highly detailed 3-D maps

for 80% of the world's surface - the most detailed maps ever made.

CHINA HOPES TO PREVENT A SPACE ARMS RACE

The Chinese government has stepped up efforts to prevent the

development of a U.S. anti-missile system, saying that its top

priority is to prevent an arms race in outer space. A Chinese

ambassador called for the UN to launch negotiations aimed at

banning the testing, deployment, and use of weapons in outer space.

NEXT MIR MISSION SCHEDULED

The Russian Space Agency has confirmed a launch schedule for the

next few months, which includes return flights to Mir. A Soyuz

booster rocket will launch on Feb. 1st with cargo in preparation

for a manned flight to the space station on March 30th. The total

cost of these missions will be $18 million.
