Exploding stars Form Halo Around Milky Way.
Risk of asteroid Strike Reduced
Exploding stars Form Halo Around Milky Way
Experts Recommend Privatized Space Station
RISK OF asteroid STRIKE REDUCED
The estimate of potentially Earth-crossing asteroids has been
reduced from 2,000 to about 700. This means that the chance the
Earth will be struck by an asteroid is down to 1% for every 2,000
years. This new study was produced by David Rabinowitz of Yale
University with colleagues at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, and was
based on research using new techniques for finding asteroids.
EXPLODING stars FORM Halo AROUND MILKY WAY
Scientists working with the new Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic
Explorer (FUSE) spacecraft have determined that exploding stars
have left a Halo of hot gas around the Milky Way. This Halo is
enormous, extending 5,000 to 10,000 light years above and below
the plane of the Milky Way.
EXPERTS RECOMMEND PRIVATIZED SPACE STATION
A report by the Space Studies Board of the National Research
Council has recommended that NASA seriously considers privatizing
the International Space Station currently under construction. The
board recommended that NASA moves quickly to find a consortium
led by a research institution managed by a strong scientific
director, who reports to NASA at the highest level.
