SPACE STATION SEES ANOTHER DELAY
Russian officials announced that they would delay the launch of the
Zvezda living quarters module for the International Space Station
after they discovered flaws in the booster rocket which will be used
to put the module in orbit. This pushes that launch back until at
least August. The Proton booster rocket has been responsible for two
crashes in the last year.
GALILEO PROVIDES MORE EVIDENCE OF EUROPAN OCEAN
In a recent flyby of Jupiter's Moon Europa, the Galileo spacecraft
passed only 350 kilometers above the surface. NASA scientists were
hoping to use this flight to help determine if Europa is covered by
a liquid ocean. During the flyby, Galileo used its magnetometer to
study the planet's magnetic field, and the resulting readings were
consistent with an electrically-conducting material, such as a
ANTARCTIC SOLAR telescope LAUNCHED
Scientists in Antarctica launched an enormous balloon carrying a
solar telescope designed to perform a detailed study of solar flares.
The size of a minivan, the telescope has 50 times the resolution of
ground-based solar telescopes, and should stay aloft for 15
to 20 days.
