Watch "MISSION CONTROL, OVER" on SpaceWatch

What are your three favorite words if you’re Joseph

Guy "Tibby" Thibodaux? Up, up, and away!

Some jobs do take a rocket scientist: like starting NASA,

for example. In 1958, Thibodaux was part of the core group

that put the "space" in "space program" when the National

Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) became NASA.

Another hero of human spaceflight, LIVE on Mission Control,

Over this week!

GALILEO'S Io IMAGES RELEASED

NASA has released the latest images of Io taken by the Galileo

spaceprobe on its most recent pass of the moon. One photo shows

a lava field near the center of an erupting Volcano as Galileo

passed only 670 kilometers above the surface. Because of the intense

radiation around the moon, all of the Io encounters were scheduled

at the end of the Galileo's mission.

NASA RECONSIDERS MARS LANDING SPOT

Recent photographs of Mars' polar regions by the Global Surveyor

has forced the Mars Polar Lander team to reconsider locations to

land their spacecraft. Initially thought to be gently rolling hills,

the photographs have revealed a series of slopes and mesas.

DUST RINGS COULD BE USED TO DETECT PLANETARY SYSTEMS

New theories of planetary system formation proposed by

astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

predict that new systems will form into rings around stars before

becoming planets. Recent photos of dust rings, such as that

around the star HR 4796A support this theory.

GAMMA BURST HELP Astronomers EXPLORE EARLY UNIVERSE

Astronomers at the University of Chicago believe that gamma

ray bursts will help probe back to the beginning of the universe.

Thought to be the most powerful explosions in the universe, the

team believes they can detect gamma bursts older and further away

than the most distant quasars - which are commonly used to

measure the early universe.

CHANDRA DETECTS X-RAY JET IN NEARBY GALAXY

The Chandra X-ray observatory helped to reveal incredible detail

of Centaurus A, a nearby Galaxy known for repeated X-ray

explosions - it's suspected the Galaxy contains a supermassive

black hole at its center. One X-ray jet alone is the length

of our own Milky Way galaxy.

THRUSTER PROBLEM WON'T HAMPER NEAR'S MISSION

During a routine trajectory correction maneuver, the NEAR

spacecraft's thrusters burned 35-40% less than planned. This

"underburn" caused the spacecraft to be slightly off-course.

Flight engineers believe the problem was caused by errors in

the software, and not with the actual thruster. They don't

believe it will cause any problem to the spacecraft's mission.
