Even before NASA started its Astrobiology Institute earlier this year,

the idea that there might be life elsewhere in the universe had begun

to move from the realm of science fiction to the that of science fact.

Few are better qualified to lay out the whole picture than time Magazine

senior science writer Michael D. Lemonick. In his latest book, Other

Worlds, Lemonick gives a detailed account of new discoveries from Mars

and Jupiter's Moon Europa, as well as breakthroughs deep-space observing

from observatories around the world. At 8PM (ET) on Thursday,

October 7th, Limonick discuss of all this and more, including the

newest developments and projections for the future of this

fascinating field!

CHINA WORKING ON NEW LAUNCH FACILITY

Chinese space officials may be developing plans for a new satellite

launching facility on a small island in the South China Sea. Near to

the equator, the facility will enable rockets to launch 7-12% more

payloads than the country's other cosmodromes: at Xichang,

Jiucuan, and Taiyuan.

HISTORIC LAUNCH PAD WILL BE DEMOLISHED

One week from now, Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral will be

demolished to make room for Lockheed Martin's new Atlas V rockets.

The Complex is significant, as it was the launch facility for the

Viking spacecraft to Mars and Venus. Using 81 kilograms of high

explosive, engineers will collapse the 90 meter tower in under 60

seconds, and then another month to haul the equipment away.

ASTEROID COULD STRIKE Earth IN 2042

Discovered on September 14th, asteroid RM45 has an extremely small

chance of striking the Earth in 2042 or 2050 - a probability of less

than one in one-hundred-million. Although the chance is quite small,

astronomers have put it on the list of potentially hazardous objects,

and will continue to measure its orbit carefully.

ASTEROID DISCOVERED TO HAVE A MOON

Astronomers have discovered a Moon orbiting the asteroid 45 Eugenia,

using the giant France-Hawaii telescope on Mauna Kea. This is the first

picture of an asteroid and Moon using a ground-based telescope. With a

moon, Astronomers can determine the mass and density of the asteroid.

HUBBLE GAZES AT GALACTIC BULGES

Using the Hubble Space Telescope, Astronomers from the University of

Nottingham and Columbia University are attempting to learn more about

the evolution of spiral galaxies. Hubble allowed the Astronomers to peer

through galactic dust and haze into the core of distant galaxies, enabling

them to determine the true colour and age of the stars in the core.

MARS HAMMERED BY METEORITES

Using photos of Martian rocks taken by the Mars Pathfinder as a guide,

NASA scientists are attempting to simulate the damage done to the surface

of Mars by meteorites. The scientists smashed small rocks into larger

boulders in the laboratory, and found they were able to mimic the damage

done to Martian rocks.

FAULTY ELECTRONICS DELAY Titan LAUNCH

Although a Titan 2 carrying a Defense Meteorological satellite Program (DMSP)

satellite was originally scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base

in late October, Air Force officials have decided to push the launch back

to December due to faulty electronics.

POSSIBLE DISCOVERY OF 10TH PLANET

Recent research gathered teams of scientists in the US and England hints

that a large object, nearly a half light-year away, could be a 10th

planet orbiting the sun. The scientists believe that giant planet, or

possibly a brown dwarf, disrupts the orbit of comets as it slowly

orbits the sun. It's impossible to see the object visually with

current telescopes.

SHUTTLE LAUNCH DELAYED AGAIN

The launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery to repair the failing Hubble

Space telescope has been delayed until December 2nd. This will give

teams ample time to repair the shuttle's damaged wires and valves.

Endeavour's next launch has been delayed until January.

LEADER NAMED TO INVESTIGATE CLIMATE ORBITER MISHAP

Arthur G. Stephenson, director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center

has been appointed to the head of a committee investigating the loss

of the Mars Climate Orbiter two weeks ago. Their initial findings are

due November 3rd.

RECALCULATIONS DOWNGRADE asteroid THREAT

Further calculations of asteroid RM45 have downgraded the possibility

that it will hit the planet in 2042 or 2050 to almost zero. The object

was discovered on September 14th and had almost no chance of striking

the Earth, but the discovery team performed additional observations and

determined that it will miss the Earth by a wide margin.
