AN ALL-NEW "DEEP SKY"

LIVE TODAY AT 8:00PM ET

Inga Heyer

Imagine being the first person in history to gaze upon the face of

a new galaxy, nebula, supernova, or cluster. More than once, that

person has been Inga Heyer, data analyst for the Space telescope

Science Institute at Johns Hopkins. Working from one of the lenses

on the Hubble Space Telescope, she is also the person who cleans

up all the distortion, like Gamma Radiation, from the image so it

can be viewed clearly - which is a lot harder than it sounds!

Lunar Eclipse Tonight

black hole Found Very Close to Earth

Ariane Will Loft 15 Rockets This Year

LUNAR ECLIPSE TONIGHT

If your skies are clear, keep your eyes skyward to watch the

year's first lunar eclipse - where the Earth's shadow passes over

the moon, turning it a copper-red colour. The eclipse will begin

at 7:01pm PST, and finish up at 10:25pm PST. It will be visible

in the Pacific, the Americas, Europe and Africa.

BLACK HOLE FOUND VERY CLOSE TO EARTH

Astronomers believe that a blast of X-rays from a nearby binary

star system is actually caused by a black hole - believed to be

the closest black hole ever discovered - only 1,600 light years

away. The X-rays were captured by the wide-angle X-ray camera on

board the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite, and for

15 hours, it was the second brightest X-ray object in the sky,

after the Sun.

ARIANE WILL LOFT 15 ROCKETS THIS YEAR

Arianespace announced its plans to launch up to 15 Ariane boosters

this year (eight to ten Ariane 4 boosters, and five Ariane 5

boosters). This is a 50% increase over their efforts last year,

where delays with the satellite payloads kept the Kourou launch

pad idle for 4 months. Arianespace has a backlog of 41 satellites

to be launched, with contracts worth US$3.15 billion.
