Could the next Age of Exploration, like the last, rely on the
power of sailing vessels? NYU Astronomer and co-author of The
tarflight Handbook Dr. Gregory Matloff thinks so. He believes
solar sails are an efficient and realistic power source for
potential interstellar travel. Now he’s taking his theories to
the next level with the tether experiment. What is it? Ask him
yourself on an all-new DEEP SKY.

GLOBULAR CLUSTERS REVEAL star SECRETS
New research into globular clusters - giant stellar groups
containing thousands or even millions of stars - have revealed
many secrets about how they form. Until now, globular clusters
have contained older stars, some 12 billion years old, but
astronomers at UCLA believe they've discovered a brand new
cluster in Galaxy NGC 5253. New enough to show exactly how the
clusters may form.
MARS COULD BE OUR ANCESTRAL HOME
Scientists have tested two strains of tough bacteria to show that
it is theoretically possible for the critters to survive a trip
through space on a rock blasted from Mars by an asteroid impact.
It's estimated that over 5 trillion rocks have been thrown off
the Red planet through asteroids, and there are tonnes of Martian
rocks here on Earth.
NASA ALLEGES FRAUD BY SUBCONTRACTORS
The U.S. Justice Department has filed a civil lawsuit against
Rockwell and Boeing for concealing fraud by a subcontractor who
worked on the Space Shuttle fleet and the International Space
Station. Supposedly, the subcontractor, Omniplan, bilked Rockwell
for millions of dollars in bogus costs, and Rockwell knowingly
passed along the costs to NASA.
BLACK HOLES COULD BE AT THE CENTRE OF EVERY GALAXY
New black holes discovered at the centre of three Galaxies have
led Astronomers to wonder if there are supermassive black holes
at the core of every galaxy. Larger than 50 million times the
mass of the sun, these black holes could be the remnants of
quasars, formed before the host Galaxy took shape.
HUBBLE IS BACK IN BUSINESS
It appears that the repairs made to the Hubble Space Telescope by
the crew of the Space Shuttle Discovery were successful, and the
giant eye in the sky is ready to go back to work. NASA has been
running the telescope through a series of tests, and on Monday it
began making science observations again.
