For years, Tele Vue Optics has been a source for new designs in

telescopes and eyepieces for amateur astronomers. Founder Al Nagler

is a former Gemini engineer who built his first telescope in a

high school shop class. It's been over 20 years since Al introduced

the telescope line that bears his name. Now he's teamed with his

son, David Nagler; both join Andy and Michael this week for a peek

at what's new in the world of optics!

NASA Begins Climate Orbiter Inquiry

Sun Emits Multiple Coronal mass Ejections

The Moon May Still Be Active

Next Sea Launch Announced

Analysis of Lunar Prospector Data will Continue

NASA BEGINS CLIMATE ORBITER INQUIRY

The review board assigned to investigate the loss of the Mars

Climate Orbiter have begun their inquiry. Led by chairman Art

Stephenson, the board will review detailed reports from the

mission team and deliver technical recommendations to NASA by

early November - ideally before the Polar Lander arrives at Mars.

SUN EMITS MULTIPLE CORONAL mass EJECTIONS

The space-based Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) recently

viewed a series of coronal mass ejections - giant plasma bursts

that travel away from the Sun at 2000 km/s. Over the course of 14

hours, the Sun produced three of these ejections. Fortunately, none

hit the earth, where they could disrupt telecommunications.

THE Moon MAY STILL BE ACTIVE

Scientists have long believed that the Moon is a completely dead

world, but a new theory proposes that there may still be some

volcanic activity. For 450 years, some Astronomers have claimed

to see transient lunar phenomena (TLP) on the surface. It was

believed that TLPs were caused by meteor impacts, but this new

theory proposes volcanic outgassing.

NEXT SEA LAUNCH ANNOUNCED

A Ukrainian aerospace official announced that the second commercial

use of the Sea Launch platform has been scheduled for January 2000.

He would not announce the client or the exact date, but the launch

will use a Ukrainian Zenit-3SL booster.

ANALYSIS OF LUNAR PROSPECTOR DATA WILL CONTINUE

Thanks to a $3 million grant from NASA, the Lunar Research

Institute will continue to analyze data picked up by the Lunar

Prospector before it was crashed into the Moon in search of

water. The data will allow the team to develop maps of the lunar

surface, magnetic fields and areas of enriched Hydrogen which

could indicate water locations.
