LIVE TODAY AT 8:00PM ET

Valentine's Day is coming up and, far and away, this year's cutest

couple is going to be asteroid Eros and the Near Earth asteroid

Rendezvous (NEAR) satellite! NEAR is on schedule to encounter Eros

on February 14 and to wet our whistles for the big event, our

guest on Deep Sky this week is Dr. Irv Robbins, specialist in the

search for and identification of near Earth asteroids.

NO CONTACT WITH THE POLAR LANDER YET

Hopes were raised at NASA on Tuesday when a weak artificial signal

came from somewhere in the vicinity of Mars, leading the agency to

believe that it could be the missing Polar Lander. Although a

message was sent back requesting that the spacecraft respond, they

don't expect to hear from it until the weekend at the earliest.

REFURBISHED NUCLEAR MISSILE MAKES A SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH

Based entirely on recycled parts from nuclear missiles, a Minotaur

rocket successfully launched Wednesday night from Vandenberg Air

Force Base. The rocket's payload was the JAWSAT collection of

satellites; two built by the Air Force, and two built by

universities. If the launch is a success, the Air Force may

seriously consider using decommissioned rockets as they reduce

launch costs by a third.

SPECULATION ON HOW Europa COULD SUPPORT LIFE

In the latest issue of Nature, astrobiologist Christopher Chyba

of the SETI Institute proposes that Europa could contain life

thanks to charged particles accelerated into the Moon by Jupiter's

immense magnetic field. The charged particles could interact with

the liquid ocean on Europa, and encourage chemical reactions that

could sustain life.

FLASHLINE.COM SPONSORS THE MARS SOCIETY

Flashline.com, a Cleveland-based Internet company, has agreed to

donate $175,000 to the Mars Society to help support the Mars Arctic

Research Station (MARS). The research station is located on Devon

Island in the Canadian Arctic, an area that most closely resembles

the surface of Mars. The Mars Society has now raised enough funds

for operations through until 2002.
