More Evidence of Past Oceans on Mars

MORE EVIDENCE OF PAST OCEANS ON MARS
New photos taken by the Mars Global Surveyor show features that
indicate Mars may have had liquid water in the past. A geological
feature extending around the northern third of the planet looks
like a giant bathtub ring, which could have been caused by waves
lapping against an ancient Martian shore.
ARIANE 5 LAUNCHES X-RAY TELESCOPE
An Ariane 5 rocket launched successfully into orbit carrying the
European Space Agency's XMM satellite - the largest x-ray telescope
ever built. This is a historic launch, as it's the first time an
Ariane 5 has been used for commercial purposes; it's also the
largest satellite ever launched by the ESA.
DISCOVERY'S LAUNCH PUSHED BACK ALMOST ANOTHER WEEK
After investigating the dented fuel line discovered yesterday
on the Space Shuttle Discovery, NASA engineers have decided to
replace it. The process will take a couple of days, so the launch
to repair Hubble has been pushed back to end of the week. The only
constraint is that NASA wants to ensure Discovery returns before
the end of the year - to avoid Y2K issues.
SPACEHAB WORKING ON PRIVATE COMMERCIAL OUTPOST
In partnership with Energia, Spacehab announced that they
are working on a permanent commercial outpost which could be
attached to the International Space Station as early as 2002.
Spacehab estimates the module - dubbed Enterprise - will cost
$100 million, and be used for private scientific research.
