TODAY ON "MISSION CONTROL, OVER" AT 2PM (ET):

Richard Underwood

Everyone knows the one rule of travel: Don't forget the camera!

That goes for space travel, too. From the Gemini days, today's

guest Richard Underwood did about everything but release the

shutter for the astronauts' pictures!

Now an international speaker and consultant on Space Photography,

Richard was the Technical Monitor for Photographic Experiments

for NASA well into the Space Shuttle era. He trained every U.S.

space traveler in photographic techniques.

NEW OPTICS BRING Neptune INTO FOCUS

Astronomers at Cornell University and NASA's JPL have captured

detailed images of Neptune using new optics built for the 200-inch

Hale telescope at Mount Palomar. The new Infrared camera built for

the telescope uses adaptive optics to adapt for atmospheric

interference, allowing for crystal clear photos - first used to

display these images of Neptune.

ESA WORRIED ABOUT SPACE JUNK

At an international conference in Darmstadt, Germany, the European

Space Agency warned that the Earth is being circled by a dangerous

amount of space garbage. They calculate that there are over 8,000 pieces

of trash 4 inches across (large enough to destroy the space shuttle),

and 150,000 at least a half inch across.

GLOBALSTAR ADDS 4 MORE satellites TO ITS NETWORK

A four-stage Soyuz rocket launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in

Kazakhstan on Monday, carrying four new additions to the Globalstar

constellation of communication satellites. This brings the total

number of satellites to 44, with 8 more planned before the end of

the year to complete the program.

CREWS BEGIN TRAINING FOR LIFE ON THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

As the pieces of the International Space Station start to come

together, the prospective crews begin training for life in space.

Five Russian-American crews began training to use the Russian-built

living module, which may launch as early as November.

RUSSIA MAY HELP CHINA'S MANNED SPACE PROGRAM

Yury Koptev, the director of the Russian Space Agency announced

that they were planning to assist China's first manned space flight.

The RSA will help work on programs that don't threaten national

security. This first Chinese flight is scheduled for 2000.

ROTON MAKES ITS THIRD TEST FLIGHT

The Roton Atmospheric Test Vehicle (ATV) from Rotary Rocket Company

made its third test flight earlier in October. The vehicle hovered

as high as 22 meters, and travelled 1,310 meters down a runway at

the Mojave airport. Rotary Rocket plans to enter commercial

service in 2001.
