RUSSIAN AND KAZAKHSTAN AGREE ON ROCKET LAUNCH DEAL

Government officials from Russia and Kazakhstan have reached an

agreement regarding launches from the Baikonur cosmodrome. The

two countries have agreed that Kazakhstan may only ban launches

from rockets which have exploded - such as the two recent Proton

crashes. This will allow an upcoming Globalstar launch on board a

Soyuz rocket to proceed as planned.

COMMERCIAL SPACE DEAL BETWEEN UKRAINE AND BRAZIL

If a new deal works out, Ukrainian rockets could soon be launching

from Brazil. Officials from the two countries recently announced

a broad cooperation agreement to launch Ukrainian Tsyklon-4 rockets

from Brazil's equatorial cosmodrome in 2001. 12 launches a year

are planned as part of this 10-year deal.

SPACE HOLIDAYS MIGHT ONLY BE 20 YEARS AWAY

The World Tourism Organization believes that you could take a

trip into space in as soon as 20 years. A variety of private

commercial ventures are planning ways to get people into space,

and even at $100,000 a ticket, people are already lining up to buy.

MORE SHUTTLE WIRING PROBLEMS FOUND

With only a few weeks to go before its launch to fix the Hubble

Space Telescope, NASA engineers have discovered more wire damage

on the Space Shuttle Discovery. All the work can be done on the

launch pad, so it's unknown whether the damage will cause any

additional delays past the Dec. 6th scheduled launch.

GALILEO PROBE HELPS REVEAL SECRETS OF JUPITER'S ORIGINS

When the Galileo spacecraft first passed the planet Jupiter,

it released a small probe designed to parachute through the

gas giant's atmosphere, and return data about its descent.

Before the probe was crushed under the immense temperature

and pressure, it provided key data that Astronomers are still

working - data that could provide clues to the formation of gas giants.

DISTANT GALACTIC CLUSTER OBSERVED BY CHANDRA

The Chandra X-ray observatory was recently focused on a distant

object known as 3C295 - a globular Galaxy cluster 5 billion

light years away. Over two million light years across, the

cluster contains a hundred galaxies. It's believed the cluster

suffered a massive explosion a million years ago.
