This week on Deep Sky: Next stop... The Red Planet?

With the Mars Polar Lander’s much anticipated touchdown on the red

planet just weeks away, Business Week Senior Science Editor Paul

Raeburn will give us a timeline of our past encounters with our nearest

neighbor in the solar system. In his book, "Uncovering the Secrets of

the Red Planet," Raeburn gives an account of past missions to Mars

and what we can hope for in the future.

DEEP SPACE 1 IN SAFE MODE

After a problem with its star tracker, the Deep Space 1 spacecraft

placed itself into safe mode. The sensor helps the craft determine

its location in solar system, and is one of the 12 new technologies

tested on DS1. NASA engineers are working to determine the exact

cause of the problem, and its solution.

CHINESE UNMANNED LAUNCH A SUCCESS

China took one of its most important steps on the way to becoming

a nation capable of lifting people into space with the successful

launch of an unmanned capsule. According to Chinese space officials,

the Shenzhou capsule was in space for 21 hours, and circled the

Earth 14 times. It was launched on board a new version of the Long

March rocket.

IO'S volcanoes PROVIDE CLUES TO EARTH'S PAST

With over 100 volcanoes, Jupiter's Moon Io is the most volcanic

objects in the solar system, and recent observations by the

Galileo spacecraft should provide geologists with many clues

about our own planet's earlier days. Although it's already

provided detailed photographs, the spacecraft is due to fly

past the Moon at an altitude of only 300 kms - its closest flyby yet.

BATTERY PROBLEM DELAYS ATLAS LAUNCH

The launch of a Navy communications satellite on board an Atlas 2A

rocket has been delayed for 24 hours because of a drained battery

in the booster rocket. Technicians are replacing the battery - a

task that takes 7 hours - and will have to wait until late Monday

for the next launch window at Cape Canaveral.
