AN ALL-NEW "MISSION CONTROL, OVER"

For three decades Joe McMann, as head of the Advanced Extravehicular

Activity Systems, dressed NASA's astronauts for all kinds of missions.

He's a pioneer in hardsuit development and is crucial in the development

of outerwear for long stays on Mars! Ask Joe all about his work in the

famous Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory...and just what is a "doglock" anyway?

He's one of the men who helped write the book on spacesuits and this

is your chance to ask him anything you want!

CHANDRA OBSERVES GALACTIC CLUSTER

With Hubble out of commission, the Chandra X-ray observatory is

having to pick up the slack. Recently, the giant space telescope

was used to observe the Hydra A galactic cluster. This object

contains hundreds of Galaxies colliding together, and has the

material to make thousands more.

SURVEYOR WILL HELP SEARCH FOR LOST LANDER

With attempts to communicate with the Mars Polar Lander

unsuccessful, NASA scientists are planning to use another

tool to find out what happened - the Mars Global Surveyor.

Its cameras don't have the resolution to see the lander

directly, but it could see the probe's 20 meter parachute,

or the signs of a violent crash landing.

SOLAR WIND STOPPED FOR A DAY

Normally a constant hail of particles from the Sun, the solar

wind nearly stopped for two days in May of this year - the

strength of the wind decreased by 30 to 50 times its normal

density. Without the pressure, the Earth's magnetic field

(which protects us from the solar wind) expanded to 100

times its normal size.

BRAZIL SCRAPS satellite PROGRAM

After its second launch failure, the Brazilian government

has decided to scrap the Scientific Applications satellite

(Saci) program. Space officials note, however, that this

isn't the end of Brazil's overall space program - in fact,

they're currently working with France to develop the next

generation of satellites.
