Watch "DEEP SKY", tonight on SpaceWatch

Between a rock and a hot place...Earth lies between the biggest

body in our solar system and the sun. Elsewhere in the galaxy,

according to this week's guest, Brad Schaefer, magnetism from

Jupiter-size planets can incite enormous star-flares that sear

entire systems.

Though flares on the surface of our Sun are observed frequently,

nothing of that magnitude has been recorded in this solar system.

But could a solar superflare have once braised the earth, as a

necessary precondition for life?

SPACE STATION MOVED TO AVOID DEBRIS

NASA controllers raised the orbit of the International Space

Station 1.5 kilometers to avoid potential impact with a piece

of space junk. Readings from NORAD predicted that a spent rocket

booster would pass within 1.4 kilometers of the

station - too close for comfort.

HUBBLE RESOLVES ELLIPTICAL Galaxy FILLED WITH BLUE STARS

The precise imaging of the Hubble Space Telescope allowed

astronomers to resolve incredible detail of the Galaxy M32,

located in the constellation of Andromeda. The images are so

detailed, it's possible to pick out many of the 8,000 blue

stars that make up the galaxy.

NASA DECIDES TO USE ORIGINAL POLAR LANDER SITE

Using new images provided by the Mars Global Surveyor, NASA

engineers had concerns that their choice of landing spot for

the Mars Polar Lander might be too dangerous. But after

further evaluation, the team has decided to stick with their

original location, and take the risk.

RUSSIAN ROCKET EXPLODES SIX MINUTES INTO LAUNCH

A Russian Proton rocket carrying a Lockheed Martin satellite

exploded six minutes after liftoff. Launched from the Baikonur

cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the rocket appears to have failed

when the second stage of the rocket fired. This is the same

rocket scheduled to launch the Zvezda module later this year.

GIANT telescope RESOLVES X-RAY JET IN NEARBY GALAXY

Using many Telescopes to act as a single giant telescope,

astronomers have been able to resolve a mysterious jet at

the center of Galaxy M87 with incredible detail. It's assumed

that the jet is caused by a giant black hole at the galaxy's

core, which spins rapidly, and fires material out in a thin jet.

PHYSICIST CHALLENGES SPEED OF LIGHT

In a recent paper published in the journal physics Letters,

Physicist John Moffat proposes that the speed of light isn't

a constant, as originally concluded by Einstein, and widely

accepted as fact. Moffat theory proposes that the speed of

light has actually slowed down since the Big Bang.
