SUPERNOVA REMNANTS FOUND AROUND black hole COMPANION

When a massive star in the system GRO J1655-40 went supernova, it

blasted itself into its binary companion, and then shrunk into a black

hole. The black hole and its companion now rotate one another.

Astronomers at Berkley realized the black hole first went supernova

when they found higher than normal concentrations of heavy elements

in the companion star - it was hit with supernova shrapnel.

SHUTTLE Astronaut REMOVED FROM UPCOMING MISSION

Originally scheduled to launch on the Space Shuttle in May 2000,

astronaut Mark Lee - a veteran of four shuttle missions - has been

removed from the crew. NASA officials characterized Lee's removal

as a disciplinary action.

MARTIAN DUST DEVILS BETTER UNDERSTOOD

Seen from orbit by the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft, scientists

had never seen Martian dust devils from the planet's surface... until

now. By filtering photographs taken by the Mars Pathfinder in 1997,

researchers have been able to identify five dust plumes, up

to 350 metres tall.

NASA'S SPACE STATION BUDGET SPARED

Citing cost overruns, Reps. Tim Roemer and Mark Sanford led an effort

to cancel NASA's budget that would be allocated to the International

Space Station - the money would be redistributed within NASA, and

also be used to fund housing programs debt reduction. The vote

was defeated 121-298.
