RUSSIAN ROCKET CRASH IMPACTS KAZAKHSTAN RELATIONS

Although the Russians have agreed to pay compensation for the most

recent crash of a Proton rocket into the countryside, Prime

Minister Kasymzhomart Tokayev told reporters that it was hurting

relations between Kazakhstan and Russia. He plans for his country

to get much more involved in ensuring rockets are safer before

permitting new launches.

Global Surveyor Spots Martian Solar Eclipses

Using its wide angle camera, the Mars Global Surveyor has been

lucky enough to spot several instances where Mars' Moon Phobos

passes in front of the sun, casting a shadow onto the Red Planet.

As Phobos is only 13 km across, and quite close to the planet,

solar eclipses are very common, occurring several times a day.

U.N. VOTES TO PREVENT SPACE ARMS RACE, U.S. ABSTAINS

A recent United Nations resolution to protect space from the

potential of a future arms race was passed 138 - 0. The

resolution would call on nations to "contribute actively to

the objective of the peaceful use of Outer space and of the

prevention of an arms race in outer space". The U.S. and

Israel abstained from voting.
