Massive star Deaths Could Cause Gamma Ray Bursts
Astronomers now suspect that gamma ray bursts, which are the most
powerful known explosions in the galaxy, could be caused when giant
stars go supernova. Evidence gathered from an enormous gamma-ray burst
in March seems to be associated with a supernova explosion - possibly
when a black hole is formed.
HUBBLE IMAGES STELLAR NURSERY IN LARGE MAGELLANIC CLOUD
New images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope from a stellar nursery
in the Large Magellanic Cloud - a satellite Galaxy to the Milky Way -
show tremendous detail of a unique environment. Radiation and gas spew
from massive stars and collide to form second-generation stars,
many less than a million years old.
RUSSIA MAY SELL time ON SPACE STATION
In order to help recover some of its development costs, Russian
space officials are investigating how they can sell time on the
International Space Station - some of its early research time has
already been sold to NASA for $60 million. Russia has been late with
all of its components of the station because they lacked funds.
TELEDESIC CONSIDERS INVESTMENT IN IRIDIUM
Teledesic knows a bargain when it sees it. The satellite
telecommunications company has confirmed it is exploring "early
market opportunities" to allow the company to enter the satellite
market without building its own birds. And rumor has it the company
is considering picking up Iridium or ICO - two companies in
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
