TODAY ON "DEEP SKY" AT 8PM (ET):

Every year in mid-November the Leonid meteorites pelt our atmosphere

in what is usually a shower...But every 33 years it doesn't rain, it

pours! Tonight Dan Benedict, meteor-enthusiast and ephemerist, will

talk to us about the coming storm.

Plus...a special guest by phone will tell us about Leonid MAC'99, a

NASA project to take stereoscopic images of the meteor storm from

two airplanes flying in tandem. A team of amateur astonomers will

be on one of them, counting those falling stars like crazy.

Make a wish!

Hubble Repair Mission Delayed Again

HUBBLE REPAIR MISSION DELAYED AGAIN

A decision to replace an engine on the Space Shuttle Discovery

will cause a 3-5 day delay of its launch to repair the crippled

Hubble Space Telescope. It seems that a piece of a drill bit fell

into the engine while it was being serviced, and the agency has

decided it won't take any chances - they're replacing

the whole engine.

ASTRONOMERS DISCOVER planet ORBITING TWO STARS

Using a technique called gravitation microlensing,

researchers at the University of Notre Dame have discovered

a planet with the mass of three Jupiters orbiting a binary

star system. This microlensing technique is also being used

by the Massive Compact Halo Objects (MACHO) collaboration,

which is attempting to search for "dark matter" in the universe.

GALAXY COLLIDED WITH Milky Way 10 BILLION YEARS AGO

Using data from the European Space Agency's Hipparcos

Satellite, Astronomers at the Max Planck Institute of

Astrophysics in Garching, Germany discovered a number of

stars moving in parallel orbits around the center of the

Milky Way. They believe these stars are the remnants of a

dwarf Galaxy that collided with our own 10 billion years ago.

NEXT H-2 LAUNCH DATE SET

After a series of launch delays, the Japanese space agency

NASDA has announced that an H-2 carrying an MTSAT-1

navigation and weather satellite will be ready for launch

on November 15th. The satellite was originally to launch

in early August, and then September, but the rocket and

satellite needed minor repairs.
