UNICATIONS satellite INTO ORBIT

Arianespace added another successful launch to its track

record when the GE-4 telecommunications satellite was placed

into orbit on board an Ariane 44LP with two strap-on solid rocket

boosters. Built by Lockheed Martin, the satellite will service

the C-/Ku-bands for North and South America. This is Arianespace's

49th consecutive successful launch.

DISCOVERY MOVED TO THE LAUNCH PAD

After a series of delays, the Space Shuttle Discovery has

finally been moved to the launch pad in preparation for its

December 6th mission to help repair the ailing Hubble Space

Telescope. The trek from the Vehicle Assembly Building to

the launch pad is 6.75 kms, and took the shuttle over four

hours to make the journey.

EXTRASOLAR planet SEEN PASSING IN FRONT OF STAR

Astronomers at the University of California, Berkeley have

witnessed an extrasolar planet passing in front of its

star - the first time this has ever been seen! After the

team discovered the evidence of a planet through its gravitation

effect on star HD 209458 they viewed the star with an automated

telescope. The planet passed in front of the star exactly

when they predicted, and dimmed it the same amount every orbit,

allowing the team to measure the size and density of the planet.

SOLAR MAXIMUM APPROACHES

The Earth is about to enter the Solar Maximum - a time when

activity on the sun's 11 year cycle reaches its peak. The

aerospace industry is concerned about the impact the increase

in solar storms will have on the constellation of

telecommunications satellites in orbit, which will face

the full brunt of the sun's energy.

200 DANGEROUS asteroids NOW DISCOVERED

Astronomers using the LINEAR telescope in New Mexico recently

discovered the 200th potentially hazardous asteroid (PHA)

named 1999 VP11. PHAs are objects above 200 meters in diameter,

and pass within 7.5 million kilometers of the Earth's orbit.

Although the LINEAR facility has only been operational for

three years, it has discovered a third of all PHAs.
