NEW PLANS FOR MIR REVEALED

More details are now available about the company with plans to

continue keeping Mir aloft. A Washington-based venture capitalist,

Walt Anderson, has will invest up $21 million to lease Mir and

CHANDRA HELPS DETERMINE THE SOURCE OF X-RAY RADIATION

The newly launched Chandra X-ray observatory has been used to get

to the bottom of an astronomical mystery - the source of

background x-ray radiation. By using Chandra to resolve a small

area of sky they determined that 80% of the background glow was

actually discrete x-ray sources, most of which are radiation from

galaxies, and giant black holes at their centres.

X-33 SEES DELAYS FROM FAULTY FUEL TANKS

NASA was hoping to test fly the X-33 spaceplane this summer, but

it looks like the flight will be delayed because of leaky fuel

tanks. How long they will be delayed is unknown, as the

graphite-epoxy tanks may need to be completely replaced with

aluminum alternatives.

HUGHES UNLOADS satellite BUSINESS

Hughes Electronics announced that it has sold its satellite

systems business to Boeing for $3.75 billion in cash. The move

will give Boeing a wider range of space-related services, from

its existing launch vehicles to extensive satellite development

services.
