Destination Mars - what's next? Will humans ever get there?

Recent events have made it clear that sending robots to Mars is not

child's play, and you may wonder if we'll ever be able to safely send

humans up there for exploration. What does it take to get to Mars,

and then back? What's involved, from flight mechanics, to safety, to

space flight dynamics?

Well, if you really wonder, or if you simply have an interest in the

history and future of space exploration, there's just one single

resource you need to check - the publisher for the American

Astronautical Society, and that's Univelt Inc. They have all

publications you'll ever want to read on this topic - check it out

at http://univelt.staigerland.com?ut - they also carry proceedings

from recent Mars Society meetings.

DID THE POLAR LANDER FALL INTO A CANYON?

A recent story in the Denver Post speculates that the Mars Polar

Lander could have fallen into a canyon over a mile deep, which

was in the landing zone. Officials from NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab

acknowledged that they knew the canyon was in the area, but they

have no way of knowing if it hit the slopes and fell in.

GALILEO MISSION TO BE EXTENDED

Although it was originally planned to end January 31st, NASA has

agreed in principle to extend the Galileo mission to explore the

Jovian system. The Galileo engineers say that the spacecraft has

lived well past its warranty, surviving twice the radiation exposure

it was designed to withstand. The spacecraft arrived in the Jovian

system in July 1995.

SHUTTLE MISSION PLANNED TO REPAIR SPACE STATION

NASA officials are close to approving a Space Shuttle mission in

March to service the International Space Station. The mission will

repair the Zarya's failing batteries, stock critical supplies and

stabilize the station's declining orbit. They're hoping to fly the

mission after the Russian Zvezda module has been attached.

ENDEAVOUR MISSION PLANNED FOR JANUARY 31ST

NASA has set the next launch date for the Space Shuttle Endeavour

to be January 31st, 2000. The 11-day mission will perform a

high-resolution digital map of the Earth with a system of radars

mounted in the shuttle's cargo bay. The mission was originally

planned for mid-September, but it fell victim to the wiring

problems that delayed all the other shuttle missions.
