SURVEYOR CAPTURES IMAGES OF MARTIAN IMPACT CRATER

During a recent flyby, the Mars Global Surveyor snapped

detailed photographs of a Martian impact crater in the

Nepenthes Mensae region. Three times the size of the Meteor

Crater in Arizona, the images show dunes inside and outside

of the crater, and boulders dislodged from the rim.

HUBBLE CAPTURES IMAGES OF THE TRIFID NEBULA

Images taken two years ago by the Hubble Space Telescope

of the Trifid Nebula show a stellar nursery under the

radioactive glare of a nearby, massive star. Within 10,000

years it's expected the glare of the central star will

erode the nebula and destroy the nacent star field.

DISTANT Kuiper belt OBJECT DISCOVERED

Astronomers at the Canadian Institute of Theoretical Physics

have discovered the most distant object ever seen in our

solar system. Located in the Kuiper Belt, over 60 AUs away

from the Earth, the object is thought to be a ball of

ice 100 km across.

HUBBLE MISSION DELAYED... AGAIN

NASA has set a new date for the launch of the Space Shuttle

Discovery on a mission to repair the damaged Hubble Space

Telescope - Dec. 6th. This latest delay was caused when

engineers decided to replace a damaged cable which is part

of the shuttle's destruct system.

PROBLEMS WITH THE MARS POLAR LANDER UNCOVERED

The NASA-appointed panel working to discover what caused the

loss of the Mars Climate Orbiter discovered a potential problem

with the upcoming Mars Polar Lander. Concerned that the landing

thrusters may misfire in the cold temperatures, they've

developed a process to pre-warm the thrusters before the

spacecraft enters Mars' atmosphere.

LAUNCH BAN COULD DELAY SPACE STATION

The Kazakhstan government recently announced that its current

launch ban from the Baikonur cosmodrome could possibly delay

the launch of the Zvezda living module - the next component of

the International Space Station. The Kazakhstan government has

taken this stance because Zvezda will be launched on board a

Proton rocket, the same type that crashed recently.

MARS CLIMATE ORBITER RELEASES ITS FINDINGS

After a detailed review of the loss of the Mars Climate Orbiter,

the special investigation team, led by Arthur Stephenson

discovered a series of problems, which they presented to

management - and the press - earlier today. As suspected,

the root cause was the mistake converting Imperial into

metric, but they also discovered a series of management

issues that allowed the error to remain in the system.

PIONEER GETS ADDITIONAL FUNDING

Although it was launched back in 1972, the Pioneer 10 spacecraft

is still providing scientists with useful data. NASA has decided

to continue funding the program that monitors the distant

spacecraft, now over 74 AUs away.
