Weld Problem Delays Launch
Terra satellite Launch Delayed
scientists Believe Europa Could Support Life
WELD PROBLEM DELAYS LAUNCH
Discovery was ready to fly, but last minute concerns about the state
of welds on the Shuttle's 20 year old fuel lines delayed the launch
for a day. It turned out not to be a problem, but NASA didn't want to
take any chances. Discovery is set to launch tonight at 8:47pm EST;
although, it could be delayed again because of bad weather.
TERRA satellite LAUNCH DELAYED
Also due to launch yesterday, NASA's Terra Earth observing satellite
experienced its own set of delays, causing its launch to be scrubbed
for a day. One delay was caused by a hang glider flying into the
launch zone and another by a faulty sensor. The launch from
Vandenberg Air Force Base has been rescheduled for Saturday.
SCIENTISTS BELIEVE Europa COULD SUPPORT LIFE
Richard Greenberg of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the
University of Arizona-Tucson believes that Europa is an ideal
location in the solar system to support life. He and other Astronomers
believe that giant cracks on the planet's surface indicate a liquid
ocean covered by a layer of ice. And where there's liquid water,
life has a chance of occurring.
