DEEP SKY

A Special 1-hour Deep Sky

with Steve Gorevan and Michael Allison

As part of Space
Watch.com's extended coverage of the mission

to Mars, Michael and Andy will be talking with robotics engineer

Steve Gorevan from Honeybee labs in New York City. Steve's research

team is building a highly precise diamond-tipped drill for the

next mission to Mars. Their sample-return technology will bring

back pill-sized cores that NASA hopes will contain signs of life!

We'll also be talking to Michael Allison, a Mars Climatologist

from the Goddard Institute for Space Science. Michael consulted

on the Mars Polar Lander project, and he'll take your questions

in chat about tomorrow's historic landing!

Polar Lander Remains Silent

Clerical Error Could Delay Shuttle Launch Again

French satellite Launched by Ariane 4

POLAR LANDER REMAINS SILENT

Although the Mars Polar Lander arrived at the Red planet on

Friday, NASA hasn't heard a peep out of it. After trying to

communicate with the lander via its main antenna on Friday,

they switched to try communicating through a different antenna

relayed by the Global Surveyor - no luck either. NASA hasn't

heard from the twin microprobes which were crashlanded into

the surface on Friday. They'll attempt to continue to contact

the Lander, but the possibility of success decreases every day.

CLERICAL ERROR COULD DELAY SHUTTLE LAUNCH AGAIN

While repairing faulty wiring on the Space Shuttle Discovery,

work crews neglected to record whether a specific wire had

been fixed. Not willing to take any risks, they'll have to

recheck Discovery while it's on the pad - this could cause

another delay, and push the launch back from December 11th.
