MARS ORBITER LOSS CAUSED BY BAD MATH
It appears that the loss of the Mars Climate Orbiter, which disappeared
from NASA's instruments while making a dangerous flyby of the Red Planet,
was likely caused by a simple miscalculation. A contractor provided
measurements in English while the Orbiter team was assuming they
PIZZA HUT SPONSORS ROCKET LAUNCH
Nearly broke, Russian space officials are looking for any way to offset
the costs to develop their components of the International Space Station.
Pizza Hut has agreed to pay approximately $1.25 million to have their logo
slapped on the side of a Russian Proton rocket which will carry the
living quarters for the space station.
URANUS AND Neptune MAY FORM DIAMONDS
Recent laboratory experiments carried out at Berkeley have tried to
mimic the effects caused by the enormous pressures on Uranus and Neptune.
By subjecting methane - a common element in the planets' atmospheres - to
100,000-500,000 times the pressure on Earth, some of the methane
turned into diamond.
EUROPA DISCOVERED TO CONTAIN SULPHURIC ACID
Data returned by the Galileo spacecraft has shown that Europa's surface
contains sulphuric acid. Ironically, this substance, also found in car
batteries, may actually improve the chances of finding life on the moon.
The acid could serve as an energy source for life on the frigid world.
