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.
