WHEN Galaxies COLLIDE!

An all-new DEEP SKY

Live on Thursday at 8:00PM ET

Galactic gridlock! Yale astronomy professor Jeff Kenney joins Michael

and Andy for a talk about what happens when spinning Galaxies get a

little too close for comfort. Galaxy interactions are observable

through the telescope and include complete mergers, clusters, and

sometimes pass-throughs. They get bent, stretched, and broken up;

it's a regular traffic jam up there.

Don't miss this brand new DEEP SKY.

ASTRONOMERS SEE REFLECTED light FROM EXTRASOLAR PLANET

Until now, Astronomers have detected planets around distant stars

through a variety of indirect means, such as their gravitational

impact around the star. But Astronomers at the University of St.

Andrews in Scotland believe they've seen the light reflecting from

a planet around Tau Bootis.

DISCOVERY IS READY TO FLY

After a series of delays, the Space Shuttle Discovery is finally

ready to embark on its mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

If all goes as planned, the shuttle will launch from Cape Canaveral

at 9:18pm EST, and return December 26th.

SEARCHING FOR meteorites IN ANTARCTICA

If you want meteorites, the frozen Southern continent is the place

to go. Because of its low temperatures, Antarctica preserves

meteorites which would normally corrode away. As well, movement

of the ice pushes the rocks to the surface so they're easy to

spot. And in snowfields, if you see something black, it can only

be a meteorite.

NEXT GENERATION OF SPACE telescope IN DEVELOPMENT

Although its images have dramatically increased our understanding

of the universe, Hubble will only be the beginning of our foray

into space-based telescopes. Next NASA plans to upgrade Hubble to

increase its capabilities 10-fold or more. Hubble's

successor - the Next Generation Space telescope - will be able

to see to the edge of the universe.
