Discovery Returns Safely Back to Earth

Russian's Launch Military Satellite

Terra Should Be Working By Next Week

DISCOVERY RETURNS SAFELY BACK TO EARTH

After a short delay due to high winds around Cape Canavaral, the Space

Shuttle Discovery made a safe landing at 7:01pm EST. Over the course

of the 8-day mission, the crew of the shuttle performed three spacewalks

to repair the broken Hubble Space Telescope - the telescope seems to be

working perfectly, and NASA will put it through its paces over the

next few weeks.

RUSSIAN'S LAUNCH MILITARY SATELLITE

A Russian Kosmos satellite was placed into orbit on board a Tsiklon-2

booster rocket on Sunday. The launch of the military satellite from the

Baikonur Cosmodrome was delayed twice; first by bad weather, and then

by a technical glitch. In a previous life, the Tsiklon launch vehicle

was a ballistic missile, which was converted for orbital launches.

TERRA SHOULD BE WORKING BY NEXT WEEK

Shortly after launch, the Terra Earth observing satellite put itself into

safe mode because of a bug in the spacecraft's navigational software. NASA

says the problem is correctable, and the satellite should be working fine

by early next week. This is the second glitch after the high-gain antenna

stopped tracking other NASA communications satellites - that problem was

quickly fixed.
