SpaceWatch: DEEP SKY

How can a star look brighter when there's another one in the way?

It's called mircolensing and it's just one speciality of this week's

guest, Princeton astronomy professor and acting director of New

Mexico's Apache Observatory, Ed Turner.

He'll join Michael and Andy for a discussion of this fascinating

phenomenon and all his other research interests, including quasars

and the fate of the Mars Polar Lander!

Don't miss this brand new DEEP SKY!

As Hope Fades, Speculation Heats Up

When Will Humans Go To Mars?

AS HOPE FADES, SPECULATION HEATS UP

Now that the major opportunities to communicate with the missing

Mars Polar Lander have come and gone, NASA is beginning to

investigate what could have gone wrong. The ideas are flying

fast and furious: the thrusters didn't work properly; the various

segments didn't detach properly; it landed on a boulder and fell

over. We may have to wait a few generations to find out for sure,

when humans visit the Red Planet.

WHEN WILL HUMANS GO TO MARS?

The loss of the recent Mars missions has done little to hold our

eagerness to send humans to Mars. Most experts, however, believe

a manned mission will happen sometime between 2011 and 2020, and

by 2050 it's likely we will have an active base on Mars.

NEW theory ON THE ORIGINS OF Uranus AND Neptune

A recent study from Queen's University used computer simulations to

determine that Uranus and Neptune could have a different origin

that previously believed. The researchers believe the two outermost

gas giants formed their cores near the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn,

and then the gravitational interactions caused them to drift out

to their current position.

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER DELAY WITH DISCOVERY

Today's delay in the launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery on its

mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope is... a dented propulsion

pipe. This latest discovery will push the launch back at least a day,

more if it turns out the pipe will need to be replaced. The earliest

it will launch now is Sunday, Dec. 12th.

JAPAN ABANDONS ITS H-2 PROGRAM

After a failed launch last month, the Japanese government has

decided to completely abandon its flagship H-2 rocket program.

At the same time, it also announced that the launch of the H-2's

successor, the less expensive H-2A, would be pushed back a year.
