Astronomy Deep Sky Guide makes observing easier

The astronomy Deep Sky Guide is created by Ron Muir and is

a great tool for Astronomers of all levels. It offers observing

lists that are suited for backyard observing, near city and

very dark sky sites. It is updated monthly and can be printed

out so you have a prepared guide for your next observing session.

This webpage is written by a active amateur Astronomer and

amateur telescope builder. The site includes a page on his

award-winning 20" computer driven scope.

Atlantis Damaged During Launch Preparations

Polar Lander Makes Successful Course Correction

Arianespace Signs Contract to Launch Australian Satellite

Upcoming Space Shuttle Launch Schedule Revised

ATLANTIS DAMAGED DURING LAUNCH PREPARATIONS

While testing the Space Shuttle Atlantis' wing flaps, technicians

heard a "crunch" noise. It turns out small doors hadn't been

released before the flaps were tested, which caused damage to

the push rods on the flaps. All the damaged parts will need to

be replaced before launch, but NASA believes the repairs won't

cause a delay for launch in March.

POLAR LANDER MAKES SUCCESSFUL COURSE CORRECTION

In preparation for its upcoming December landing, the Mars Polar

Lander made a small, well-planned course correction. This is the

fourth correction the spacecraft has made since launch, and it

will make one final maneuver before landing on December 3rd

somewhere near the planet's south pole.

UPCOMING Space Shuttle LAUNCH SCHEDULE REVISED

For a variety of reasons, NASA has decided to reschedule

several upcoming Space Shuttle launches: a mission to the

space station, originally planned for December, has been

pushed back to March; Discovery's upcoming launch was

delayed at least a day to make minor repairs; and Atlantis

will be pushed back no earlier than March 16th
