COULD MARTIAN LIFE SURVIVE A BLAST THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE?
Although they know that bacteria can survive a tremendous amount of
time in the cold of space, astrobiologists aren't sure how they can
handle atmospheric re-entry on a meteorite. To test their theories,
they've strapped artificial meteorites filled with bacteria onto a
Russian Space probe which will be launched into space and then
returned to Earth.
SURVEYOR CAN'T FIND THE POLAR LANDER
After pointing the powerful camera on the Mars Global Surveyor at
the projected landing site of the Mars Polar Lander, scientists at
Malin Space Science Systems were unable to locate the missing
space probe. In order to get a better idea of what they're
looking for, they're going to try and find Pathfinder first -
an object they know is on the surface of Mars.
SOLAR ACTIVITY RELATIVELY QUIET
Increased solar activity was predicted to cause additional
glitches beyond the Y2K bug, but like the non-event of the bug,
solar activity has been low. The predictions were made because
the Sun is entering the peak of its 11-year cycle of solar
activity - but NASA scientists say that making predictions
about the Sun are impossible.
