Polar Lander will Arrive Later Today

SOHO is Having Problems

Sounds from Mars Could Be Delayed

POLAR LANDER WILL ARRIVE LATER TODAY

After a long flight, the Mars Polar Lander is due to arrive at the

Red planet at approximately 3 p.m. EST. The spacecraft will enter

the Martian atmosphere at precisely the right angle, separate from

its heat shield, deploy a parachute and touch down with its

thrusters on the surface. The spacecraft should communicate

its status back to NASA within 24 minutes of its arrival.

HUBBLE REPAIR MISSION SET FOR DEC. 11TH

NASA is performing last-minute repairs on the Space Shuttle

Discovery in preparation for its launch to repair the Hubble

Space Telescope, and it looks like they're a little behind

schedule. Subsequently, the official launch date has been set

for December 11th at 12:13am.

SOHO IS HAVING PROBLEMS

The U.S.-European Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO)

spacecraft went into emergency safe mode when one of its attitude

control units reset. Controllers don't know what caused the

problem, but it's similar to a situation that occurred in

November, 1997.

SOUNDS FROM MARS COULD BE DELAYED

On board the Mars Polar Lander is a tiny microphone designed

to "listen" to the sounds of Mars: wind blowing, sand scraping,

the Polar Lander humming. Unfortunately, officials with the

Planetary Society (the team who built the microphone) realized

the microphone's memory was filled with test sounds from Earth,

and wasn't reset. Fortunately the microphone is designed to

reset its memory once a day, so sounds from Mars should come

one day after landing.
