LEONID METEORS WILL PUT ON A SHOW

As Thursday approaches, Astronomers and scientists anticipate

the possibility of a dazzling Leonid meteor shower. As the

Earth moves through Comet Tempel-Tuttle's dust trail, it's

predicted that 4,000-6,000 meteors per hour will streak a

burning trail through our atmosphere.

SETI'S 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATED

It's been twenty-five years since a message was sent from the

Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico towards the Great Cluster

in Hercules. It's still to soon to hear back from the expected

audience, as the Cluster is 25,000 light years away, and no

other stars were in the path of the message.

MARS MICROPROBES NAMED AFTER ANTARCTIC EXPLORERS

Two microprobes carried on board the Mars Polar Lander have been

officially named after the leaders of two Antarctic expeditions:

Amundsen and Scott. The probes will slam into the surface of the

Red planet and drive detection equipment one-meter under the surface.

ANOTHER GYRO FAILS, CRIPPLING HUBBLE

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope knew they were

working on borrowed time, and their fears were realized on Saturday

when another of Hubble's gyro's failed, leaving the scope with

only two operation. The telescope needs three to operate, so

until the Dec. 6th Space Shuttle Discovery mission is complete,

Hubble is out of commission.

MERCURY TRANSITS IN FRONT OF THE SUN

In an event that only happens every 13 times a century, a transit

of the planet Mercury across the face of the Sun was visible from

Earth. North and South America were the best places to see the

transit, which lasted 52 minutes.

JAPANESE ROCKET DETONATED AFTER LAUNCH

After a Japanese H-2 rocket veered off course controllers on

the ground were forced to detonate it 8-minutes after launch

to prevent a possible crash. Authorities believe the misfire

was caused by a malfunctioning main engine. The rocket was

carrying a multi-purpose satellite for aviation control

and meteorological observation.
