LAST COSMONAUTS LEAVE MIR

After 13 years of use, Mir has nearly reached the end of its service.

Russians cosmonauts Viktor Afanasyev and Sergei Avdeyev and Frenchman

Jean-Pierre Haignere exited the station, closed the hatch, and returned

to Earth - they were the last cosmonauts to visit the station. The station

is expected to return to Earth sometime next year.

DETAILED PICTURES OF asteroid CAPTURED

Astronomers working from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory captured the

most detailed images of an asteroid ever. Dubbed 1999 JM8, the object is

3.5 km across, and passed within 8.5 million kilometres of the Earth

earlier this month.

PULSAR PUZZLES ASTRONOMERS

Australian Astronomers have discovered a slow-rotating pulsar

(PSR J2144-3933), with a rotation period of only 8.5 seconds -

several times slower than previously thought possible. It's theorized

that the pulsar has slowed down because of its age; as much as 260

million years old.

ATLAS II ROCKETS APPROVED FOR LAUNCH

After a series of launch accidents and a subsequent investigation,

officials at Lockheed Martin have given the Atlas II launch program

the go ahead to resume. The first launch will be September 10th with

the Echostar V on board an Atlas IIAS.

INVESTIGATIONS DISCOVER WIRE DAMAGE ON ALL SHUTTLES

After the launch of the Space Shuttle Columbia was nearly aborted

because of an electrical shortage, NASA decided to inspect all the

shuttles for similar damage. It was a wise move, as it appears all

of the shuttles have wire damage to some extent - twenty instances

of damage on Endeavor alone. It's expected all upcoming shuttle

launches will be delayed as the damage is repaired.

NEW IMAGES OF IO

Galileo has snapped new images of Io, Jupiter's pockmarked moon,

showing more detail than previously seen. The images, first released

on Friday, were taken by Galileo on July 3 at a range of

about 130,000 km.

ARIANESPACE SUFFERS MORE DELAYS

Two more Ariane 4 launches have been delayed, because of problems

with the satellites that were planned for launch in September.

The delayed launches are for the Korean Koreasat 3 and the

Telstar 7 communication satellites.
