Can Martian Life Survive First Contact.
This Thursday night at 8:00PM (ET) on SpaceWatch.com's weekly live
Internet TV show, "Deep Sky", the special guest will be David Malin.
Malin, one of the best know astrophotgrahers in the world, is also
known as the "Ansel Adams of the Sky." This Australian native will
be in New York for an exhibition of his photographs at the Howard
Schickler Gallery. After the opening he will be live in the
SpaceWatch studios taking your questions via chat, talking about
his work and his remarkable new book, "The Invisible Universe".

FOUR NEW GLOBALSTAR satellites LAUNCHED
Globalstar reached an important milestone today, with the addition
of 4 new satellites launched on board a Russian Soyuz rocket from
the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. This brings the total
to 40 satellites.
CLIMATE ORBITER ALMOST AT MARS
The Mars Climate Orbiter will reach its target later today when it
performs a complex aerobraking maneuver to slow its speed, and begin
the process of placing the spacecraft into a stable Martian
orbit - which will take almost two months. The Climate Orbiter
will serve as a communications platform for the upcoming Polar
Lander mission as well as gather data on Martian weather.
SUN COULD STERILIZE THE EARTH
By observing solar analogues - stars exactly like our own
sun - Astronomers have seen several cases of "superflares". If one
of these flares erupted from our own sun, and happened to hit the
Earth, the damage would be catastrophic, destroying the ozone layer,
and permitting solar radiation to sterilize the planet.
UNIVERSE EXPANDING EVEN FASTER THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT
Using new calculations on Cepheids, giant pulsating stars used to
calculate distance to other galaxies, a international team of Astronomers
have determined that the universe is expanding faster than previously
thought. This means that the universe is probably younger too.
