Tonight on Space Watch

X-rays aren't just for bones anymore. X-ray Astronomer and

CHANDRA research team member Terry Matilsky from Rutgers

University will join Michael and Andy this week.

He'll bring us up to date on CHANDRA, as well as the South

African Large telescope (SALT) project. The design of this

enormous spectrograph includes a fixed primary mirror, along

with a 91-component, 10-meter revolving mirror.

POLAR LANDER ABOUT TO MAKE COURSE CORRECTION

NASA engineers are planning a minor course correction of the Mars

Polar Lander on October 20th on its way to its landing on the Red

Planet on December 3rd. The engineers are also working to reconfigure

the spacecraft's antenna to communicate directly with Earth, without

the aid of the lost Climate Orbiter.

CHANDRA REVEALS MORE SECRETS ABOUT ETA CARINAE

The Chandra X-ray observatory is helping Astronomers reveal more

secrets about the mysterious object known as Eta Carinae. The strange

object emits more energy from its outer layer than its core, and it's

the most luminous object in our galaxy, equal to several million

times that of the sun.

PROSPECTOR CRASH DIDN'T TURN UP ANY WATER

A presentation by a researcher from the University of Texas at a

recent conference in Italy showed that the Lunar Prospector didn't

throw up a plume of water ice when it crashed into the Moon several

months ago. The researchers hoped to see the spectral signature of

water in the dust cloud kicked up from the impact, but no luck.

NEW RADIO telescope ARRAY PLANS FOR AUSTRALIA

Plans are being drawn up for what will be the largest array of radio

telescopes in the world - tens of thousands of egg-shaped radio Telescopes

in a giant grid. Other countries have also submitted designs, including

China, Canada, The Netherlands, and the United States. It will still be

several years before a design or location are chosen.

IKONOS BEGINS SELLING PHOTOS FROM SPACE

Able to capture details on Earth down to a resolution of 1 metre,

the Ikonos satellite is one of the most precise cameras in space - and

you can rent it. The company that launched the Ikonos, Space Imaging,

plans to allow the general public to purchase photos of any location

on Earth for between $30-$500 per square mile.

MIR LOSING AIR AND ALTITUDE, BUT STILL SAFE

A recent report from the Interfax news agency indicates that the Mir

spacestation is losing air pressure, and about 200 meters of altitude

every day. Neither of these problems, however, will stop a Russian crew

from entering the station in March or April 2000 to prepare Mir for

its crash landing.
